Primary backs buy-out of Napier Turbochargers
Primary has acquired Napier Turbochargers (“Napier”) for an undisclosed sum from Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Limited, a subsidiary of Siemens AG. The Napier name is one of the most highly recognised and prestigious brands in British engineering history, tracing its roots back to the start of the automotive and aerospace industries. Producing its first production Napier car in 1900, this was followed by a successful racing history before commencing manufacture of turbochargers in 1947.
Today, Napier is one of the largest independent manufacturers in the world of large axial turbochargers for use in the marine, power generation and rail traction industries. It manufactures turbochargers for diesel, heavy fuel, dual fuel and gas engines in the 0.5MW-20MW power range as well as providing related spares and aftermarket services to its substantial installed base.
From its own manufacturing facility in Lincoln, Napier services a worldwide customer base of leading engine manufacturers and independent service centres. Napier employs a highly skilled and committed workforce of over 160 and generates turnover of over £30 million.
