Automotive parts firm celebrates 25 yearsAutomotive-components specialist Sanoh UK Manufacturing ( celebrated 25 years of trading in December at its site in Avonmouth.

The Japanese-owned firm, which makes brake and fuel lines for major car manufacturers, opened its factory in December 1992 to supply the Honda Motor Co in Swindon and has since expanded into two more units on the site, as well as plants in Swindon and Sunderland.

With major customers including Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Honda, it has become one of the largest employers in the area, with over 330 staff working full-time at its plants.

Having survived two recessions during those 25 years, Sanoh UK is now looking forward to the major changes in automotive technology that are on the horizon. These include the drive towards electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as autonomous vehicles and global sourcing.

Managing director Paul Davis said: “Sanoh UK is one of the leading subsidiaries in the wider Sanoh family. We have achieved this by smart planning, good people and the support of our customers, staff and suppliers.

"As a successful British company, we are well placed to continue to grow and flourish over the next 25 years. None of us knows for certain what the future will bring, but we will ensure that we are prepared for all eventualities.”
