Owen Developments (UK) Company Structure
Owen Developments consists of five divisions-
This division is responsible for designing and developing new products and initiatives to the company and subsequently to the market. The automotive industry is a fast moving world of new technologies and ever changing models, which we are able to cater for. The motorsport areas of the industry are very competitive by
their very nature. It is imperative that we not only meet the demands for components for new and past products but that we also invest time and money in developing new systems and parts to compliment the manufacturer’s latest products. Whether the fuel is petrol, diesel, methanol or even the latest hybrid power, we have a solution and suitable products to meet those requirements.
The ability to combine machined and fabricated parts in-house is unique amongst engineering companies and this ensures total control over quality, production volumes and product lead times. Working from technical design drawing supplied by our clients or produced in-house at Owen Developments, we are happy to manufacture and supply small or large batches of products. All manufactured products are subject to universally recognised ISO standards.
This department is headed by Lee Owen who has many years experience in the turbocharger development division and controls the production and supply of both one-off specials, rebuilds and new turbochargers for Group A and Group N motorsport as well as fast road hybrids. Also catered for are volume supplies of OE parts to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket. All major makes of turbochargers are catered for from Japanese to American, including the Garrett Roller Bearing Turbos.
The remanufacturing of turbochargers to their original specification using genuine components is a major part of our business and one that is growing all the time as turbochargers are fitted to more and more standard road going cars and commercial vehicles especially with the boom in diesel vehicle sales. Major vehicle manufacturers, private customers, franchised and non-franchised automotive dealerships and service centres throughout the UK use this remanufacturing service.
Mark Harrison is regarded in the industry as one of the leading exponents in performance engine development and engine calibration and he ‘heads’ this division.
Petrol engines can be totally transformed by installing the latest technology in stand-alone ECU's. Once the new system is installed and to ensure the ECU and engine are in harmony, the vehicle should be fine-tuned using our on-site rolling road. This state of the art computerised facility is equipped with full data logging facilities to provide the customer with a precise record of their vehicle’s performance. The two and four-wheel drive rolling roads can handle such power as 35 to 1,200 bhp with adequate cooling to ensure safe and realistic control over engine temperatures.
Our reputation, expertise and products speak for themselves. Having such a broad customer base over so many years, we know how to serve our customers and we would be delighted to share our expertise with you.
