One of the UK’s largest independently owned automotive parts manufacturers and suppliers, Standard Motor Products Europe (SMPE), has announced that its customers are set to further benefit from another expansion of its engine management programme.

The range now includes 48 extra part numbers, such as ignition oils, EGR coolers, air mass meters, oxygen sensors and diesel injectors, available from early 2019. The new additions further boost European car parc coverage.

The parts, covering some of the world’s top marques, include 37 additions under the iconic Lucas brand, whose full programme will be available via SMPE to motor factors and garages throughout the UK & Ireland independent automotive aftermarket, as part of a new, wider agreement.

“It’s clear, from the numerous conversations and visits to our stand at Frankfurt, that our breadth of range and commitment to quality is much revered by factors, garages and other key decision makers. It also adds further confidence to our growing UK customer base, who benefit from our engine management solutions and will now reap further advantages thanks to our Lucas offering,” said Richard Morley, SMPE Commercial Director.

To make the parts identification process as simple as possible for its customers, SMPE offers the most comprehensive listings available by adding as much additional detail as possible to each application, including technical details and part changes by chassis or engine number.

Founded in 1968, Standard Motor Products Europe has built one of the strongest European aftermarket portfolios available through its no compromise attitude to quality and performance, with a focus on four main products areas of ignition, engine management, switches & sensors and fuelling. It delivers its aftermarket programme via a range of trusted brands including Intermotor, Fuel Parts, High Volt, Kerr Nelson, Blue Streak and Lemark.

Now celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, SMPE operates from its facilities based in Annesley, Nottinghamshire, which has received the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation.
