Ruroc – Product Engineering & Design


Lotus helmet

Quote

We couldn’t ask for a more professional, reliable supplier.  They have given us flexible lead times and technical support throughout the production process to ensure we get the best possible product.  The greatest thing is their level of knowledge and their sincere passion for what they do.  I know if I phone up with a product query the team at BEC actively want to take it on and solve it.

The Brief

Working collaboratively with Ruroc’s design agency, Curventa, our brief was to manufacture a helmet that would provide full face protection for snowboarders.

The Solution

Managing the entire plastic manufacturing process for this ground-breaking product we were able to keep tight control of the costs for Ruroc and make technical recommendations along the way.

The product has proved such a success that the helmets have allowed Ruroc to diversify.  They are being used by a number of F1 pit crews:  Lotus, Brawn, McLaren, Red Bull, Torro Rosso, Williams and Force India.
