Fai Automotive plc has evolved from motorsport, with its high standards of technical, logistical and administrative efficiency. Ian walker, our founder, was a semi-professional race and rally driver from 1956 to 1962, when he retired from driving and trained ian walker racing (iwr). It was a race team of four fully professional cars, which campaigned throughout Europe and North America with considerable success. In addition to two pilots under contract, the team had the chance to occasionally join the services of pilots such as jimmy clark, graham hill and jackie stewart. During the closing of iwr in 1968, its assets and part of the staff were integrated into the ian walker service - a garage company - specializing in the sale and maintenance of high performance cars, especially lotus.It has also produced and marketed performance conversions, such as camshafts, heads, intake and exhaust collectors, and possibly competitive engines. In 1974, we started reconditioning engines for road cars and, as a result, we re-arranged the camshafts and, due to the cost of the engine parts then in effect, we began to source supplies outside the franchised networks. As we developed our inventory and availability, we saw a market opportunity to offer a range of engine parts to the engine reconditioning industry.
Starting in 1976, the proposed small range included reprofiled camshafts, trackers, pushers, shafts, oil pump repair kits, distribution chains, and core plugs. We started with a range of 8 pieces consisting of a total of only 135 part numbers, and operated in 2,250 square feet rooms. We now operate in premises covering 110,000 square feet, our current product range consists of more than 25 product lines, 40,000 parts numbers covering more than 100 car manufacturers and at any given time, our average inventory of parts amounts to more than 5,000,000 items. Over the years, we have made significant investments in the product lines we offer. In 2015, our joints and head bolts saw more than 2,000 parts numbers introduced, the steering and suspension currently have more than 5,000 parts numbers, while our distribution chain kits offer the most complete kits in terms of content but also fleet coverage found on the market today.We are also the only licensed distributor in the United Kingdom of lucas preheating candles industry leader, which consists of more than 150 references. We continually add to all our product lines, while introducing all new product lines such as our new drawers, torsion vibration shock absorbers and oil control valves. At fai, we believe that our continued success has been achieved by maintaining certain key principles. High sampling rate - 98%>. Thank you very much for your interest.
