SURFACE TRANSFORMS CONTRACT AWARD

17 Aug 2021

Knowsley-based manufacturers Surface Transforms has been selected as a tier one supplier of a carbon ceramic brake disc to a major mainstream US automotive company.

All terms and conditions have been agreed and the new OEM customer will be described by the company as “OEM 10”.

Specifically, the selection is for Surface Transforms, manufacturers of carbon fibre reinforced ceramic brake discs, to be the tier one sole supplier of the carbon ceramic brake disc as standard fit on both axles of a new edition to an existing internal combustion engine car.

The previous model already uses carbon ceramic discs and the company’s brake disc is replacing the existing supplier. The lifetime revenue on this specific contract is estimated to be approximately £20m starting in mid 2024.

Annual revenue is estimated to be approximately £5m per year from 2025 to 2027 inclusive, with around half that sum in 2024 and 2028. The contract is priced in pounds sterling.

The company expects to publish its half year results for the six months ended 30 June 2021 on 13 September 2021.

Kevin Johnson, chief executive, said: "This is a very significant win for Surface Transforms. The customer is one of the most respected names in the industry and provides a further key reference point for other OEMs.

“The contract win was one of those anticipated in the recent fund raise, and thus remains within our previously stated capacity requirements. We look forward to further extending our relationship with this new customer.”
