TP CATS TO CEASE UK PRODUCTION

Catalyst and DPF producer TP Engineering Ltd is to cease UK production of catalysts and  diesel particulate filters.

The firm, also known as TPCATS, is owned by Portugal-based emissions manufacturer Fabriscape. In a letter to customers seen by CAT, Fabriscape confirms that production at the Stoke-on-Trent works will end ‘with immediate effect’ and that production will resume in Portugal ‘once the missing production resources have been put in place’.

The letter said that a  finished stock and logistics team will remain on site so that orders can continue to be placed, but that ‘it is not possible to prevent some disruption and availability issues’ as production is moved. No reason was given in the letter for the abrupt cessation of production, with the letter simply saying that it was after ‘thoughtful consideration’.

The current time is a period of change for UK emission products manufacturing. Earlier this week, rival producer European Exhausts and Catalysts was found to be selling non-compliant DPFs and later this month another rival, Klarius Products is due to stand trial on a similar charge.
