epm:technology ends year with £4m automotive deal

Derby-based carbon fibre component manufacturer epm: technology is finishing 2015 by announcing it has won its first series production contract to manufacture high-quality, cosmetic components for a leading automotive client.

Graham Mulholland, epm: technology CEO, said: "After a year of all years, as we moved and settled into our new 60,000sq ft technology centre, this order is great news for team epm and a fitting way to sign off the year.”

He added: “We’ve now secured substantial new orders in aerospace, motorsport, defence and new automotive market sectors which will see the epm group grow considerably throughout 2016.

“This particular order is for a complex assembly of components which are very high-profile and we’re thrilled to now be working closely with our clients as this first vehicle programme goes into production in Q1 2016.

“We now have clear vision of other components which will also go into production at various times throughout 2016. Therefore, we’re clearly now on target for our automotive division to grow throughout next year as we continue to invest in our capabilities to be customer-focused and customer-ready,” Graham said.

The company has not revealed the name of the client.
