Tinsley Bridge, a Sheffield steel vehicle suspension manufacturer, had been approached by BAE to help with an urgent problem - the Army desperately needed to improve the suspension of its Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle at its increased protection weight, raise its rise height and maintain its mobility - and time was of the essence.
