Supply Chain

Although predominantly in the Japanese supply chain, Pressmark produces many body-in-white and other structural products for various vehicle marques. Growing the business for over 40 years, Pressmark has become a leading supplier in the automotive sector, working with various materials. Whether it is a special alloy, aluminium or high-strength steel, Pressmark has expertise and experience with all of these materials.

Principal Products in Automotive

The principal products within the automotive industry are passenger cars, vans, sports utility vehicles (SUV’s), trucks, buses and motorcycles. Here at Pressmark, our largest volume component is manufactured for a passenger car at the rate of 100,000 units per month, showing that we have the capability to scale up to meet customer demands. About 14% of our products use aluminium pressings.

Passenger car components are by far our largest automotive output at Pressmark. Whether you require small, simple parts, such as bumper brackets, hinges, suspension mounting brackets or battery trays, to more complex products such as door sills, centre console dashboard supports or rear sub-frames, we have the plant, equipment, knowledge and skillset to support you.

In the automotive truck market, whether that be a light commercial vehicle (LCV) or heavy commercial vehicle (HCV), Pressmark has a wide range of plant to support the larger components required for these vehicles and the thicker gauge material too. With our knowledge of aluminium pressings, we can also help you reduce your vehicle’s weight.

Bus manufacturers have been building lighter weight structures for some time now by utilising complex aluminium extrusions. With the automotive knowledge that Pressmark have, we have helped companies change from traditional steel pressings to aluminium pressings and, in some instances, have re-designed costly machined aluminium pressings into cheaper pressed extrusions.
