Fastener supplier Optimas Solutions will provide UK-based TVR with integrated supply chain services and engineering support for fastener and c-class components on TVR’s 200mph+ supercar, Griffith.

Optimas will provide Direct Line Feed of traditional fasteners, c-class components and additional commodities to the point of use, as well as engineering integration and delivery of an efficient Bill of Materials.

“The new TVR production facility in South Wales has been designed around road car design legend Gordon Murray’s iStream manufacturing process, which combines lightweight technology, low-carbon propulsion, excellent safety and unprecedented manufacturing flexibility,” Optimas stated.

“As an established solutions provider for the automotive industry, Optimas was selected based on its reputation for service and a proven ability to manage stock effectively and deliver innovative, cost saving solutions.”

David Humphreys, Purchase Manager for TVR, commentded: “As we prepare for production of the new vehicle, we wanted to form a partnership that we could trust. I know that Optimas will help us develop a cost-effective Bill of Materials with high quality components and keep our production lines continuously stocked.”

Peter Illingworth, speaking on behalf of Optimas, addded: “The design for the launch vehicle is well underway, but we still have the opportunity to help the engineers at TVR to make the car as efficient and cost effective as possible. Our first job will be to convert the legacy fasteners to our own stock profile and then source all remaining new parts. Once the Bill of Material is complete, TVR will have the advantage of ordering through a single supplier – offering valuable economies of scale.”

As the former OEM-Supply segment of Anixter, Optimas supplies highly engineered fastener hardware and components. Optimas has 2,000 employees operating across 70 locations, and is headquartered at 2651 Compass Rd., Glenview, IL 60026. Tel: 224 999-1000 Web:
