11-2022: Milltek Sport has announced it will open a brand-new facility in Alcoa, Tennessee, as part of a major five-year strategic expansion in the USA, with the formation of a new company Milltek Corp. The Milltek Corp facility opened its doors in August with the planned installation of an on-site manufacturing and R&D facility within the next 12-18 months. This will create over 35 jobs at the facility over the next three years.
“We’ve worked hard to remain at the forefront of manufacturer trends throughout our 39-year history,” said Steve Pound, Managing Director of Milltek Sport and CEO of Milltek Corp. “From forced induction and electrification, to tighter emission controls, our products continue to offer customers enhanced sound, quality, and durability, without compromising on compliance. The US Domestic Market has always been an exciting one for us, and plans for our next series of first to market systems for the USA are already well underway.”
The new Alcoa facility was selected with the help of the Tennessee Department for Economic and Community Development and the Blount Partnership, situated in a prominent and accessible position for courier networks, and close to east coast ports for inbound sea freight.
Founded in 1983 by a British true car enthusiast, Milltek Sport has grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of performance exhaust systems for a continually growing range of vehicles. With headquarters in Derby, UK and an additional development and testing center at Germany’s iconic Nürburgring race circuit, Milltek designs, develops and tests its range of exhaust systems in-house using state of the art equipment.
