Expansion plans herald new era for Revolution Wheelslucys
The Nottingham, UK based competition wheel manufacturer, Revolution Wheels International, has recently acquired two further units on the unique and ecologically sustainable Sherwood Energy Village as part of its expansion programme to satisfy the demand for their new range of race wheels.
Following a successful exhibition of their wheels at Autosport International earlier in the year, the pressure has been on to cope with the demand. As most of the wheels that Revolution supply are custom finished, it is not simply a matter of so-called ‘box shifting’, as managing director, Warren McKiernan explains: “Our wheels are all specially designed to be fit for purpose, using the most advanced computer programmes including FEA and FEM. Manufacturing is equally sophisticated, using modern flow-forming casting techniques to give a precisely balanced and durable wheel.”
The finishing touch for the wheels is where the offset is machined to suit each customer’s vehicle requirements, resulting in a product that is not only technically advanced but is also craftsman finished.
“With our building footprint now effectively increased threefold, we will soon be able to offer a vastly reduced turnaround time for our wheels – down to 3-5 days – in addition to improving our storage facility, giving a greater choice of wheel designs and sizes,” continues McKiernan.
With a history going back over 50 years and supplying many famous motorsport competitors, Revolution Wheels are certainly not resting on their laurels and, for their many dealers and distributors, as well as the end user competitor, this expansion is the start of the next stage in the carefully planned evolution of the company.
