Lotus Cars: Exige

Polar Manufacturing was approached by Lotus Cars to support the manufacture of the rear clam shells for the Lotus Exige.

Polar were able to act quickly and set up the operation to make the Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) components within two weeks. We now provide two clam shells per day using a split shift from one mould tool.

The introduction of the Wet Lay process enables Polar to offer both GRP and prepreg laminating which allows us to support our clients various requirements.

Polar Manufacturing can react quickly to changing requirements and hopes to do more GRP production in the future.
