We’re delighted to welcome Mark Ingram to the Hewland team as our new Technical Director, overseeing our Engineering team in developing market-leading EV powertrain solutions.

Following the strategic investment by Hero Motors Company at the beginning of 2021,  Hewland’s advanced design expertise combined with Hero Motors’ cost-leading mass-manufacturing capabilities enables the group to support customers from concept to supply.

With over 20 years of experience in the industry, Mark Ingram brings a wealth of experience to the role. Having previously worked for Changan UK, Ricardo and GKN Technology, Mark’s career has seen him collaborate with businesses and customers all over the world, including South Korea, Japan, China and India.

As Technical Director for Hewland, Mark will be supporting the Design Office and Production Engineering teams in leading the transformation into mainstream higher volume programmes for OEMs and Tier One suppliers.

“The investment from Hero Motors made me really take notice of what Hewland is doing in the industry,” says Mark. “As a respected presence in the motorsport industry, Hewland has always delivered world-leading products, and I wanted to be a part of the new transformation journey.”

“Mark’s expertise, experience and history of working with global businesses and customers make him a great asset to the Hewland team,” says Andy Morley, Managing Director for Hewland.  “We’re delighted to have him on board, and are looking forward to seeing what he brings to Hewland.”

“We will still be focusing on the motorsport and high-performance sectors, but as we expand, we are also developing solutions for air mobility, marine, off-highway and other sectors – and Mark is a big part of making that happen.”

Hewland, the UK based design and manufacturer of performance automotive transmissions has established a new base in North America.

As part of its commitment to the wider US market and in support of its growing customer base Hewland Inc was formed in 2018 and a new Technical Support Centre has now been fully commissioned. Based in Mooresville, North Carolina the newly up-fitted facility reflects Hewlands high standards for technical support and the servicing and build of transmissions, with a location that allows it to easily reach and support its customers.

“The US market is a key strategic market for Hewland and recent developments both within motorsport and other emerging markets meant the time was right to make this commitment. It provides an important service to our customers and provides a platform for Hewland to significantly grow its presence in the coming years” said Steve Robins, CEO.
