Gibson Technology becomes new brand at Repton
Leading UK motorsport and powertrain specialist Zytek Engineering will officially embrace its new company name and branding from 1st October 2014. Following the separation of the Zytek Group of companies during 2014, Zytek Engineering Limited will change its name to Gibson Technology Limited. Zytek Automotive, based in Lichfield, Staffordshire, is now wholly owned by German company Continental AG.
Bill Gibson, founder of Zytek and owner of Gibson Technology, is pleased to announce, “We are very excited about the new branding of the company but want all our customers and suppliers to understand that we have made these changes to clarify our identity following Zytek Group’s separation and we can assure them that everything else here at Repton will remain totally unchanged. I intend to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the motorsport world, in both current and new technologies.”
Gibson Technology’s core motorsport activity will continue to be the design, production and support of LMP2 racecars and engines, with which it won the 24 hours of Le Mans this year, and also supplying teams in the WEC, TUSCC and ELMS championships. In addition, they design, manufacture and maintain the 530 bhp V8 engines to the entire Renault World FR3.5 Series, Auto GP and FA1 Championships and will shortly be announcing some exciting new projects.
