SMPE becomes Lucas UK engine management licensee
Standard Motor Products Europe (SMPE) has become the official UK & Ireland licensee for the Lucas brand of engine management.
From 1 May, customers will benefit from the considerable resources invested by SMPE in range re-profiling, packaging and cataloguing. As a result, SMPE has added a further 1500 parts to the Lucas engine management programme, resulting in a 65 percent increase in vehicle parc coverage.
SMPE, which has recently announced additional investment in its Nottingham Centre of Engineering Excellence, is also the license holder for the Lucas brand of engine management in Europe.
The SMPE managed Lucas engine management programme includes: Ignition coils, cam/crank sensors, air mass meters, EGR valves, lead sets, coolant temp sensors and oil pressure switches.
SMPE recently announced that the Lucas brand is now sponsor of Team GB for the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
Richard Morley, SMPE commercial director, said: “UK customers will immediately benefit from the investment we have made in the Lucas engine management programme. Following a period of transition, our plans are to ensure the Lucas brand builds on its heritage and remains synonymous with quality and performance. Under SMPE’s stewardship, we are confident of achieving this.”
SMPE offers one of the strongest OE matching quality European aftermarket engine management programmes available, through its commitment to quality and performance, underpinned by its ISO 9001:2015 accreditation.
