Zytek Engineering to Change Name

Sep 15, 2014

UK motorsport and powertrain specialist Zytek Engineering will officially embrace its new company name and branding on Oct. 1.

Following the separation of the Zytek Group of companies earlier this year, Zytek Engineering Limited will change its name to Gibson Technology Limited, according to a press release.

Zytek Automotive, based in Lichfield, Staffordshire, is now wholly owned by German company Continental AG.

“We are very excited about the new branding of the company, but want all our customers and suppliers to understand that we have made these changes to clarify our identity following Zytek Group’s separation and we can assure them that everything else here at Repton will remain totally unchanged,” said Bill Gibson, founder of Zytek and owner of Gibson Technology. “I intend to ensure that we remain at the forefront of the motorsport world, in both current and new technologies.”

Gibson Technology’s core motorsport activity will continue to be the design, production and support of LMP2 racecars and engines, with which it won the 24 hours of Le Mans this year, and also supplying teams in the WEC, TUSCC and ELMS championships, the release noted.

In addition, the company designs, manufactures and maintains the 530-bhp V-8 engines to the entire Renault World FR3.5 Series, Auto GP and FA1 Championships.
