With over 10 years of success in iconic whole vehicle racing and motorsport design and production, Racing Technologies Norfolk – the team that designed and constructed the Le Mans winning Bentley EXP Speed 8 – was acquired by Express Composites Group Ltd (formerly Ex-Press Plastics Group Ltd) from Audi AG in 2007.
Express Composites Group, acquired by TCV and SPC Holdings in 2006, has over 40 years of successful trading in the composites and tooling activities. Racing Technology Norfolk is central to its strategy and growth objectives, providing both enormous technology transfer benefits to customers and the ambition to establish itself as a leading player in the high performance automotive sector.
The newly created Group employs more than 150 staff at its existing Hingham and Loddon sites. With a strong record of accomplishment in the aerospace, automotive and motor sport sectors, the company is expanding its client base in the defence, marine and telecommunications sectors. A new facility for the expanded Group is also under construction at Ellough, near Beccles.
