Over twenty years ago we supplied Ducati with their first-ever flush fit filler cap. From this auspicious start we have since supplied many other manufacturers, large and small, with our products.
Newton Equipment products can be seen in every branch of motor sport. We do not have our name on everything we make, (we like our customers to take the credit-sometimes!) but the distinctive design makes them readily recognised. It is true to say that we have built our reputation in the sport where owners looked for a high performance, reliable product to see them through to the finish. Our first filler cap product, the Aero 400, was chosen for the Ferrari F40, since that time there have been many other very high performance cars that have used our filler caps for both fuel and oil.
Our Company started by building small numbers of fuel caps inspired by designs seen on aircraft. While we do not supply the industry direct we are pleased and interested to see that aircraft industry has now returned the compliment. Most light aircraft now use our tank filler caps- some use the stylish bolted flange models and others a 'glass-in' variant that is built into a composite wing structure. We are delighted by their appreciation of our development work and precision engineering.
We are working on some projects for the defence sectors, but are forbidden to publicise the work. We hope to continue working in this challenging and rewarding sector.
