Croft’s entry into the nuclear supply chain as a tier 4 supplier is very much a result of our ability to tailor a product to each client’s specific needs.
Currently supplying components and assemblies to F1 teams, nearly all top motorsport teams across the globe rely on Xtrac’s experience and expertise in their field.
Since the 2010 season, Xtrac have supplied complete gearbox assemblies to a number of teams. They approached Croft for a new and unique filtration solution to fit in their assemblies.
Xtrac supplied Croft with drawings of their requirements and once a prototype had undergone rigorous testing, had given approval for the manufacture of 50 filters. The filters were to be used in the very next F1 race and so Croft provided a quick turnaround.
Xtrac F1 Design Engineer, Adam James:
“The service we received was excellent. Being very high quality, Xtrac are extremely pleased with the filters Croft supplied. The compact size of the filters helped with the packaging restraints of our gearbox and after successful testing we have continued using the filters throughout the season.”
Croft Filters’ Neil Burns said:
“This is an example of Croft being in the fast lane, with innovative design work and skilled technicians working with customers to meet tight deadlines and deliver quality products.”
Croft proposed a new and improved design and promptly manufactured and delivered the filters, much to our delight, meaning we could replace the existing components quickly and easily.
