SMP Europe grows number of UK engineers to 16

Date: Friday 08 July 2022

SMP Europe, home of the Intermotor, Lemark and Lucas engine management brands, has grown the number of its UK engineering team to 16, as it accelerates its development in bringing solutions for the future vehicle parc to the aftermarket.

As a leader in the engineering and manufacturing of engine management products, SMP Europe engineers support the entire process from the development of the product, right the way through to its production, boosted by its investment in 3D printing to assist in rapid product prototyping.

The company has invested heavily in its technical and engineering resource, becoming the trusted authority on engine management, ignition and emission product solutions. Product ranges include ignition leads and coils, air mass meters, knock sensors, temperature sensors, EGR valves, exhaust gas temperature sensors and fuel vapour values, fuel injectors and pumps, plus many more listed on its new website 

At its UK Centre of Engineering Excellence in Nottingham, SMP Europe has added a new garage workshop with ramps and equipment to support customers even further with technical expertise.

Here, SMP Europe engineers have a platform to identify and develop new product ranges, in particular in the expanding EV and hybrid markets, as well as continuing their excellent work in internal combustion engines (ICE). The new facility will enable accelerated product development, benefitting distributors and garages and further cementing SMP Europe as an engineering leader in the industry.

Ross Toomey, SMP Europe Managing Director, said:

“The past two years has seen us accelerate our investment in engineering, which has been the foundation of our business since its beginning more than 50 years ago. Distributors and technicians are seeing the benefit, as we meet their needs for engineering and technical knowledge.”
