10,000th UK-built axle from BPW

Published to the CV Show website on
03/03/2011

A year after starting to build suspension systems in the UK, BPW in Leicester has built its 10,000th axle, beating its own target by 25%.  Retiring Managing Director Richard Gibbs says the new facility has helped the firm "respond more quickly" to customers' "changing requirements".  At the same time the firm has been able to keep its stock of finished axle assemblies to a minimum.  The UK firm is a subsidiary of BPW in Germany, which says it is Europe's leading trailer axle and suspension maker. In the UK, BPW claims market leadership too.
