It’s been nearly a year since the last blog post and thought that a new post really should be put up on the website!
So what has happened over the last year with Carbonwurks?
Well, it’s hard to put into words how much has been going on. From designing and developing a complete carbon package for the Mercedes A45 to covering almost every part on the BMW M3 and M4. We’ve moved into new premises, taken on new staff, developed our new carbon fibre sunglasses range and more than anything, we’ve made friends with some great customers and communities.
The Carbon package on the A45 and A class is starting to come to a close. There are new parts still being designed and produced for the latest facelift A45 which will be available late 2016, however we have covered almost every single part for the A class now. We are particularly proud of the quality being produce on our latest parts which is using Formula 1 technology and implementing that into road car carbon fibre parts.
Alongside the carbon for the A45 we worked closely with a long standing partner – Nitron Suspension – for a full race ready but still road going coil-over suspension kit. This took a handful of months to develop with testing being carried out to really dial in the best settings. The outcome is a car that really could take it to supercars on a country road or race circuit.
The A class and CLA platform we have developed massively over the last year and however it is coming to a close, there are still many new exciting products being worked on.
The BMW side of things has hotted up a lot, particularly over the last 6-9 months. We now offer a complete M performance package without badge taxing people. We stand by quality but also offering parts at sensible pricing. The M4 exterior package was completed earlier this year and recently the M3 has followed with the rear boot spoiler now being available. We are very happy with the progress of our parts for these cars and are always striving to improve further where we can.
As the company has expanded with it’s product range we’ve had to move into bigger premises as well as having a larger off site storage facility. New additional staff has also been taken on with the same extremely high standard of workmanship being kept.
A new range of Arch Guards has also been designed and developed with this range of parts continuing to expand to various models and makes of cars. Alongside the other main platforms, we’ve been working on some smaller items for various models of cars that includes mirrors, bezel surrounds, head unit surrounds and tail gate trims.
This year we have also developed our own range of sunglasses which incorporates full carbon frames and temples along with polarised lenses. Another line of products we are proud of and would love to get more involved in the lifestyle range.
So in short, we’ve been pretty busy! There is still a little over 2 months until the end of 2016 and we intent on making the most of it.
All the best,
