Parts manufacture and supply is crucial to the upkeep and restoration of all Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars. Member companies produce and supply a vast number of parts for the older generations of cars, which ranges from the simplest sealing washer to complete units such as cylinder heads etc. Increasingly original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts are becoming unavailable for relatively modern vehicles. RRBSA members are at the forefront of identifying these parts and ensuring production is in place where needed.
For those producing ‘safety critical’ components, the RRBSA has put in place strict production guidelines and protocols to ensure these items meet the necessary standards for production. The RRBSA forum allows members to report faults identified with parts produced, which aids product development and improves the quality of the supply chain. Once again, this demonstrates how collaborative working benefits both member companies and Rolls-Royce & Bentley owners.
