We were established by our Managing Director in 2010 to fill a gap in the market. There was no-one properly remanufacturing turbos in Scotland in any scale. Sure there were a couple of smaller scale repairers but no-one fully invested.
With the backing and training from one of the parts distributors, we set up our first workshop in Glasgow and started with 3 members of staff, basic machines and a belief that it was possible! We quickly outgrew our premises and moved into our current premises in 2013.
Along the way we’ve learned lots of lessons, built some really strong customer and supplier relationships and continued to grow. By 2018 we had 17 members of staff and growing, remanufacturing around 500 turbos per month and are now one of the largest operations in the UK.
We supply turbos all across the UK to independent repairers, motor factors and buying groups. We are always looking to broaden our product range as that is one of the key things that sets us apart from our competition, we usually have the latest turbos and are usually first to market with new products.
Our turbos are not always the cheapest around, but we are incredibly particular about what parts pass our inspection process. We see what our competition does to get costs down and it’s not for us! That has always been part of what we do. If there are any doubts, or uncertainties we will always be cautious, often costing us money but I guess that is one of the lessons we’ve learned.
Along the way we added stock of OE turbos and some new aftermarket products, and this was really to give our customers as much choice as possible, and to ensure they are not paying to much for expensive OE turbos via main dealers. This has been very successful, in fact lots of main dealers buy turbos from us now!
