Fairground rides, ski lifts and pogo sticks… not normally the kind of transport associated with GM’s UK operations, but in a new initiative, products like these could soon be constructed using genuine GM components.

Engines, injector pumps, transmissions and other components are now available to other industries through www.gmpowercomponents.com , providing access to GM proven, reliable, hardwearing components.

This new initiative also sees GM in the UK offering manufacturers in other UK industries access to GM’s tried and tested engineering expertise which has gone into developing those components.

Possible uses include engines and transmissions for specialist car and boat manufacturers, injector pumps for bakeries, seats for furniture designers and even clutch-pedals for pogo sticks!

This new initiative will offer the very best quality components at exceptional prices for bone fide manufacturers.

Potential customers can browse the website for what is on offer or, if they don’t see exactly what they want, e-mail a request into GM. Subject to confirmation to ensure they are a genuine manufacturer, the order can be processed and sent out to the buyer.

For complete powertrain development engineering assurance, GM Power Components works in partnership with Millbrook, a wholly owned GM Company that operates independently, providing confidential engineering services to a worldwide client base. Millbrook – www.millbrook.co.uk – is a world leader in whole vehicle and component development, test, validation and homologation. As well as being a leader in vehicle and component integration and development, Millbrook also specialises in low volume special vehicle operation manufacturing including LPG and CNG vehicle applications, which it has engineered. This affiliation ensures customers a stress-free interaction with GM Power Components, as they can be safe in the knowledge that Millbrook is on hand to provide technical support.

With a huge stock of products, GM Power Components can help manufacturers reduce potentially crippling R & D costs, and there is the additional benefit to the customer of the peace of mind of knowing they are dealing with the world’s biggest automotive manufacturer and ordering the best grade of products available.
