In December 2017, Europeene SEA Samrev, an authoritative manufacturer of brake discs and drums with a long history, faced financial difficulties and the company closed down.
In June 2018, the remaining warehouse stock and manufacturing facilities were put out to tender. Winnard managed to retain a significant part of them and move new facilities in Lucy, near the location of Samrev. At the same time, the company retained key employees of Samrev, acquired the right to use the Samrev name and began developing a wide range of brake discs and drums that Samrev had previously produced.
The address of the company's new representative office in France: Winnard France SAS, 12 Rue des Tourneballets, 28110 Lucé, FRANCE, Tel: +33 234400401
