NGK exhibits ar MechanEx Sandown

It may have been grey outside, but it was green on ignition specialist NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd’s stand at the MechanEx show at Sandown Park.

The company – renowned for its original equipment (OE) spark plugs and glow plugs – focused on its market-leading NTK sensors range at the two-day event, attracting plenty of interest from garage workshop visitors.

NGK is the world’s largest manufacturer of Lambda sensors and NTK has been proving its excellence and know-how for decades as a leader in the production of OE Lambda sensors for vehicle manufacturers (VMs), supplying the same components to the UK aftermarket.

In September, the company added to the NTK range with the launch of new ranges of Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensors and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors to further strength its engine management sensors’ portfolio.

The NTK range comprises 87 MAF sensors and 69 MAP sensors and both provide the ECU with a signal needed to calculate the amount of air aspirated by the engine.

NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Marketing Manager Mark Hallam said: “Green is our NTK brand colour, so we decided to have a green theme at the show to highlight our environmentally-friendly credentials and we were delighted with the response from the workshop visitors who fit our sensors.

“As an OE supplier, we work very closely with vehicle manufacturers to provide the best possible components to help reduce vehicle emissions and protect the environment. Our NTK Lambda sensors always match the VMs’ specifications so workshops can be sure that they are fitting the perfect sensor for their customers’ vehicles; they are similar, but different to other brands.”
