Although many of our tier 1 automotive customers have had closures in line with OEM shutdowns, forteq had several major customers needing supply, thus the recommended coronavirus safety procedures have been actioned.
Aftermarket demand has still been strong and forteq have been flexible to meet these needs and continue supply. The automotive re-start is now on the agenda to ensure those who closed can get a swift response and back up and running as and when needed.
forteq UK located in Huddersfield supply technical plastic parts for the automotive industry, as well as industrial components for a wide range of applications such as meters and valves. In recent years forteq have secured new business for Electric Vehicle components that has developed into one of our key strategic applications alongside air suspension, actuator gears, engine timing systems and fuel filtration.
Significant investment approaching £2 million has been made in the Huddersfield facility over the past few years to ensure we are utilising the latest and most efficient technologies to stay ahead.
Steve Roberts, Business Development Manager, said: “forteq UK have secured two new blue chip customers during 2019 and currently working towards completion of 30 mould tools with minimal disruption, we are actively looking for mould tool transfers too for customers considering relocating tooling for cost out projects or consolidating supply base”.
forteq are exhibiting at Interplas at the NEC in September, hopefully.
