Advanced manufacturing company Quickstep Holdings has received full global signoff from the Ford Motor Company to manufacture an innovative air duct for the Ford Falcon XR6 Sprint.

Ford is Quickstep’s first automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) client.

The Falcon XR6 Sprint will be the first global mass-produced Ford to feature a carbon fibre air intake system, providing a showcase for Quickstep’s automotive capability and the role of carbon fibre in the automotive industry.

“We are delighted to work with Ford on its groundbreaking technology, said Quickstep managing director, David Marino.

“During design and development we qualified materials, resins and processes that replace a thick walled, injection moulding plastic component with a very thin-walled carbon fibre part.

“We are excited by this signature contract and believe the automotive growth opportunities for Quickstep will be significant.”

The air intake system was designed by Premcar, engineered and tested by Ford, and manufactured by Quickstep Automotive.

It will be manufactured at Quickstep’s Waurn Ponds automotive facility and production has begun.
