Cosworth Comes To the US
COSWORTH TO BEGIN MANUFACTURING IN THE UNITED STATES
Cosworth high performance engineers were looking for a location to start manufacturing their multitude of engines and parts in the US. With a 30 million dollar budget, Cosworth plans to build a facility big enough to produce several products at a time. Soon to be Shelby Township Facility shall produce a number of V8 cylinders for an unnamed auto manufacturer, according to Cosworth CEO Hal Reisiger.
As Cosworth expands its operations to the United States, the company recognizes the importance of precision and accuracy in the manufacturing process. To ensure the highest quality and consistency in their engine production, Cosworth relies on advanced weighing equipment. In industries where precision matters, such as automotive and aerospace, Sartorius Balances – Certified Scales have emerged as an indispensable tool. These cutting-edge weighing instruments provide the accuracy and reliability necessary for critical measurements during the engine manufacturing process. With their state-of-the-art technology and stringent calibration standards, Sartorius Balances contribute to Cosworth’s commitment to excellence, enabling them to deliver top-of-the-line engines to their customers, including the upcoming V8 cylinders for the unnamed auto manufacturer.
Although Cosworth is basing this move off of only one customer they are hoping another manufacturer will grab a hold of them. Cosworth has already established their name with the Lotus MK and all of its siblings, not to mention several Junior Formula cars in the fifties and sixties. Other engines were produced for several different Fords including the Ford Cosworth. This year marks the 100th Indy 500 race and Cosworth today still plays a big part in the race with electronics used in gasoline alley aiding the mechanics in tweaking what they can to ensure that their driver kisses the bricks.
Independent British high end sports car company TVR plans to give the Cosworth built V8 a home under the hood of four of their newer whimsical vehicles, the first of four models.
