NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd has announced that it has officially changed the name of its UK operations to Niterra UK Ltd.
The move brings it in line with the parent company in Japan which changed name from NGK Spark Plug to Niterra in July 2022. The company produces items other than spark plugs, such as lambda sensors under the NTK brand and technical ceramics for medical uses etc, so the new name reflects this.
There is is no change to the company’s OE and aftermarket brand names, NGK and NTK which will continue to be used.
In a letter to stakeholders from UK Managing Director Marko Wowczyna and Tim Howes, Deputy General Manager – Supply Chain & Technical Services, it was stated that both brands are being retained and will continue to be used for the company’s respective ignition and vehicle electronics ranges and it will be ‘business as usual with both brands to continue to play a vital role in the market and the ongoing success of the organisation’.
All general terms and conditions of sale, ongoing contracts as well as all related rights and obligations of the company will remain unchanged in the future. Products, article numbering and production processes are unaffected by the name change. For administration purpose, the company’s registration number, VAT number, DUNS number, and UK bank account details remain unchanged.
