Mugen Expands European Facility

Mugen Euro is expanding, while many Japanese tuning brands in the US have fallen back due to the changing market and economy, it's not the case in Europe. Mugen Euro supports a vibrant racing community in UK and Europe in addition to selling parts for the street. Their success in the World Touring Car Championship racing has grown to the point that they need more room to assemble engines for their factory and customer cars. Check out the official press release below for more info.

11 July 2013                                                       For Immediate Release

After successfully operating out of premises in Northampton for the past seven years, Mugen Euro will be moving in October 2013 to a new, purpose-adapted engine research and development centre, based nearby in Milton Keynes, UK.

In 2006, Mugen Euro was formed to help maintain the tradition of MUGEN engines operating in numerous categories of world motorsport. In addition, from 1992 to 1999, MUGEN supplied its own-prepared Grand Prix engines (scoring four famous victories).

With this expansion into bespoke premises, the company can progress even further in the supply and preparation of HONDA-based winning powertrains for a variety of racing and rallying categories, including CN sports racing cars, and to distribute quality Mugen-Power performance parts through its UK retailers.

Mugen Euro Vice President Hiro Toyoda announced the reason for the change of location: "Expansion of our current HONDA WTCC factory/customer team engine support programme to extend to additional customer teams next year, together with further high-level motorsport projects to be accommodated in 2015 and onwards, means that we need significantly larger and better-equipped premises. We are also taking advantage of the latest available technologies in installing the most up-to-date dynamometers and control equipment, as well as markedly improving the facilities for our staff and visitors".

The first of several advanced-specification transient AC engine test cells engineered by our technical partner SIERRA CP Engineering will be in operation from November 2013.
