A trusted partner for quality automotive interior parts
An experienced Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive supplier, Applied Component Technology (ACT) is at the forefront of innovation in our sector. We specialise in interior components and systems such as loadfloors, luggage covers, barrier nets, plastic injection mouldings and composite panels.
ACT, which has held the automotive TS16949 (Now IATF16949) accreditation for over ten years, works with clients from design and prototyping right through to serial manufacture and assembly. Whilst our focus is on interior trim, we also manufacture plastic components and assemblies for other areas of the vehicle, including exterior. We also supply mouldings and other components and assemblies to non-automotive clients across a variety of industrial sectors
Innovation is at the core of what we do. We are continually exploring new ideas and materials, to improve the vehicle interior. Recent work includes a patent-protected novel lightweight electric luggage cover and an innovative branded accessory. This focus on innovation also drove our recent entry into the aerospace interiors market, where we now manufacture a bio-composite, high-security, lightweight galley cart, for a global customer.
Our core processes include compression moulding, injection moulding, wrapping, die-cutting, plastic welding, sewing and general assembly. Our manufacturing facilities are a mix of highly-automated, robotic systems and manual assembly cells, allowing us to offer appropriate solutions across a range of volume requirements. We always try to offer alternative material solutions and our innovation in this area has led to ACT becoming the UK’s highest volume manufacturer of bio-composite parts, typically utilising a highly sustainable mix of natural fibres and sugar resin.
ACT’s team comprises skilled and experienced professionals across a variety of disciplines including design, engineering, project management, manufacturing and quality, who together have vast experience across all tiers of the car industry and beyond. We are an agile and pro-active group, keen to add value to our customer’s products by constantly striving to find improvements in design, materials and processes.Get in touch
