Quickstep to manufacture Ford Falcon XR6 Sprint parts

16 February 2016

Quickstep today announced that it has commenced production of an innovative carbon fibre air intake system for the Ford Falcon XR6 Sprint at its Waurn Ponds facility near Geelong, Victoria.

Ford is Quickstep’s first automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) client providing a showcase for Quickstep’s automotive capability and the role of carbon fibre in the automotive industry, managing director, David Marino said.

"We are delighted to work with Ford on its groundbreaking technology. During design and development we qualified materials, resins and processes that replace a thick‐walled, injection moulding plastic component with a very thin‐walled carbon fibre part. We are excited by this signature contract and believe the automotive growth opportunities for Quickstep will be significant.”

The air intake system (pictured above) was designed by Premcar and engineered and tested by Ford.
