Wiltshire firm swoops for national tyre manufacturer

A Wiltshire motorsport brand has acquires Portugal’s national tyre manufacturer.

Nova Motorsport, which specialises in premium competition and high-spec tyres, has completed the acquisition of Camac.

Nova Motorsport is aiming to solidify its position as a leading supplier of Avon Motorsport and Avon Racing products.

James Weekley, Nova Motorsport’s commercial director, said: “The acquisition of Camac represents a fundamental milestone in the execution of Nova Motorsport’s global business strategy.

“It not only solidifies our position as a leading independent tyre manufacturer for the motorsport and specialist tyre industries, but critically, it facilitates and accelerates the reindustrialization of the Avon Motorsport product range.

The acquisition provides Nova Motorsport with access to a production facility in Palmeira, Portugal, with an annual capacity of more than 500,000 tyres.

Camac is already established in the specialised tire market, particularly within the competitive motorsport sector.

Nova Motorsport, which has recently appointed Mike Lynch as chief technical officer, is set to leverage Camac’s manufacturing capabilities and expertise to advance tyre performance and customer service.

“Nova Motorsport is proud to have recently employed some of the finest technical experts and engineers in the tyre and motorsport industries,” added James Weekly.

“We already have our own technical and manufacturing experts busy recommissioning the new factory, supported by our Global Technical Centre and HQ in Holt, England. Our focus remains steadfast on ensuring ultimate quality and performance in our products while continually advancing innovation in tire technology.”
