SNG Barratt Ltd

Bridgnorth, Shropshire

SNG Barratt is the world's leading supplier of Jaguar spare parts with overseas branches in the USA, France and Holland in addition to the UK head office in Bridgnorth.

The Brief

With many classic car parts no longer available, SNG Barratt needed to develop a process to allow them to duplicate existing parts for manufacture.

The Outcome

The Department of Engineering and Technology provided expertise in reverse engineering and support with the redesign and modification of parts and evaluation of suitable modern manufacturing methods. Rapid prototype models were produced to prove concepts, plus detailed cost/benefit and life cycle analyses.

SNG Barratt’s re-investment in the Jaguar marque allows long obsolete parts to be recreated, guaranteeing the future of many historically important vehicles.

Highlights

SNG Barratt was commended for the Lord Stafford Achievement in Innovation Award 2004.
