The Cheadle plant, based in Staffordshire UK, is Klarius’ manufacturing plant producing over 2 million replacement exhausts, catalytic converters (CATs), Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) and mounting components for road vehicles every year. Following a period of substantial investment it has been transformed into one of the most efficient automotive component development and manufacturing centres in Europe.
Strategic investments in lean manufacturing, training, new production operations and logistics has streamlined processes to reduce waste and allow us to become a truly lean operation. New flexible processes have enabled the plant to adapt quickly to changes in market and to our customers requirements.
Our state-of-the-art Research and Development Centre and Test Track is also located at Cheadle, in addition to substantial stock-holding of Emission Control products. New products are designed and launched by the Technical Centre every week, while regular independent confirmation and testing is also carried out by the VCA on-site.
Design and operations are certified to ISO 9001:2008.
