“Of course, being involved with the motorsport industry had its attractions, but this is somehow more ‘real’ manufacturing,” David Eszenyi says. Colin Searle, Ivor Searle’s Chairman, and Managing Director Richard Sweatt made the decision to add to the management structure after sales were continually exceeding production output. Since Eszenyi’s appointment, the company has seen a 20 per cent increase in production. The aim is to achieve a 100 per cent increase in production output. In addition to distributing remanufactured engines and cylinder heads in the UK, Ivor Searle Limited exports to Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Norway.
