STANDARD Motor Products Europe (SMPE) has extended the Lucas engine management portfolio with the introduction of a series of new products.
Around 3,000 new products are now available for workshops to order, such as pumps, switches, sensors and valves, all of which are engineered by SMPE in the UK and are ready to be delivered anywhere in Europe with Lucas’ new licence agreement.
Among the new additions are 491 oxygen sensors, 164 exhaust gas temperature sensors, 75 air mass meters and 537 ignition lead sets, meaning the supplier now has one of the largest offerings of engine management products available, covering around 1,000 OE and aftermarket references, as well as 19m UK and German vehicle registrations.
The product expansion is part of a complete overhaul of the brand’s line-up, following the ownership of European distribution rights being transferred to Lucas under SMPE stewardship as the company undertook considerable investment in range re-profiling, packaging and cataloguing.
Richard Morley, commercial director at SMPE, commented: ‘This first phase of planned Lucas brand development under the SMPE name could not get off to a better start with the addition of so many part numbers, bringing it in line with the SMPE brands.
‘It means many more customers throughout Europe will now benefit from an even wider choice from such a renowned brand, backed by SMPE’s manufacturing expertise.
‘This is only the beginning of some very big plans to develop the Lucas brand, so it’s very much a case of “watch this space” as the year progresses.’
