We also supply specialist commercial vehicle finishers in the bus and truck market with a range of products for commercial and industrial vehicles.
Engineers and designers work with us to develop parts through prototype stage, produce modifications following testing and wind tunnel work, and offer solutions for improved efficiency and aerodynamics.
We also manufacture and supply low-medium volume parts into specialist and niche vehicle manufacturers – including energy recovery systems and powertrain technologies. Common products supplied into the mechanical and engineering side of the industry include gearbox and suspension seals, grommets, gaitors, AV mounts, fuel bladders and fuel hatch gaskets, damping pads and connector seals.
We can offer a unique service for restoration projects, where parts can no longer be sourced from the original manufacturers through obsolescence and therefore the only option is to have bespoke replica parts made. This can be done either from a sample of the old part, which we will test and find an alternative material for, or using a drawing if available, or even reverse engineering through a study of the application.
