An international organisation for automotive engineering announced last week that they will be moving their global headquarters to Stansted.

FISITA (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d’Ingénieurs des Techniques de l’Automobile), will relocate to a brand new office at the M11 Business Link in November, and will create four new jobs in the area.

The move will provide the organisation, which represents more than 210,000 engineers globally, with additional office space and a more accessible meeting hub for its international members through Stansted Airport.

Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, said, “I am delighted to have received board support to relocate FISITA’s headquarters to Stansted. This move gives us the space and improved connectivity with members required as we continue to modernise and develop services to our members around the world, positioning the organisation positively to move forward and deliver our recently approved plans for 2020 and beyond.”

FISITA President Paul Mascarenas said: “FISITA needs to be well connected and accessible for our members. The Stansted head office will provide our UK based team and members with a modern environment in which to work for many years to come.”
