SMPE TO GROW ENGINEERING TEAM

Standard Motor Products Europe (SMPE) has announced that it is developing a new ‘rapid prototyping facility’ at its Nottingham centre. The development forms part of a host of additional investments by the company into the centre, including doubling its engineering team and purchasing new testing equipment. SMPE said in a statement that the aim is for the site to become its engineering hub for product development, with the new facility enabling the company to ‘fast track’ new products and supply them to the UK aftermarket quickly. Richard Morley, Commercial Director for SMPE, said: “Through our investment in Nottingham, we have a specific focus on future technologies ensuring we continue to lead the market with the strongest OE-quality engine management programmes available. SMPE Nottingham is the hub of this development and we are growing our engineering expertise for the benefit of customers throughout the UK, continental Europe and further afield.” SMPE is also expected to increase development of the Intermotor and Lemark brands.
