Milltek Sport have more than 30 years of expertise in the car tuning field, developing performance exhaust systems for vehicles from a wide range of car makers. All Milltek exhausts are designed, developed and manufactured in-house in the UK and exported to dealers in over 80 countries worldwide.

Miss McClarkin said:

"I was delighted to visit Milltek Sport and see for myself the facilities which make them a market-leader in their field. It never fails to amaze me just how many industry-leading companies we have here in the region.

“We’re world leaders in manufacturing here in the East Midlands, and we need to ensure legislation is encouraging innovation, not stifling business, so that our companies can continue to innovate.”

Steve Pound, Milltek Sport’s Managing Director said:

“It was great to meet Emma and show her how our business develops and manufactures exhaust systems here in the East Midlands. It was also a good opportunity to talk to an MEP about the new EU legislations and their effect on small automotive businesses.”

“Support from the European Parliament to help us continue to innovate and grow is a great step in the right direction for Milltek Sport and other aftermarket automotive companies.”
