Colwyn-Bay based Mark Water Pumps will be contributing towards a group order from Maruti Suzuki in India for over 250,000 parts destined for its popular Swift model. The new business has been secured by the technical expertise of David Lewis and the Colwyn Bay based team, who together have decades of experience servicing the automotive industry.

David Lewis, Plant Manager at Mark Water Pumps Limited comments: “We are proud to be manufacturing oil pumps and front cover assemblies for Maruti Suzuki. When visiting India, it always puts a smile on my face to see how many Swifts there are on the roads and knowing that we are part of that.”

“We have been manufacturing automotive components for Maruti Suzuki for a number of years now and are thrilled that they have not only continually supported our partnership with them, but have also requested that we supply an additional quarter of a million plus units for their well-known Swift model.

“One of the factors that has helped establish this relationship is our close association with foundries worldwide, such as our group company operations in India where we make exhausts and other components.”

The Maruti Suzuki Swift is one of India’s best-loved cars and in 2017 (after over a decade of production in the Indian market) it will be undergoing a number of cosmetic and mechanical changes for improved styling and performance.

A new UBE UB-iS2 series high pressure aluminium die-casting machine has been purchased to support the order. Fitted with an automatic casting extractor, sprayer and unload facility, it significantly increases manufacturing capacity. The machine also supports new mould technology, resulting in the capacity to produce larger products with an optimum shape and high rigidity for the finished casting.

The new manufacturing facility in Delhi will add oil pumps to Mark Water Pump’s extensive portfolio, which already incorporates shock absorbers, exhausts systems, catalytic converters (CATs), diesel particulate filters (DPFs), brake pads and pressed Body-In-White (BIW) parts.

David concludes: “With the acquisition of our new die-casting machine, we are now able to provide an even larger scale of manufacturing to our customers with reduced lead times.”
