Snap-on will supply tools and tool control solutions to Red Bull Powertrains’ new state-of-the-art UK technology campus
Powering the highest class of international open-wheel racing requires strong, precise and reliable tools, leading Red Bull Powertrains to form a technical partnership with Snap-on.
Red Bull Powertrains was established in 2021 to supply powertrains to Oracle Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri. This new powertrain division is based out of the high-tech Red Bull Technology Campus in a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility in Milton Keynes, UK.
Snap-on will provide hand and power tools for use at the manufacturing site and in test labs, all of which will be secured in its Level 5 Automated Tool Control (ATC) solution.
These tools, combined with the most sophisticated tool management technology in the manufacturing industry, will further contribute to the success of the Red Bull Powertrains operation. Snap-on has been a long-standing technical partner and proven expert in providing innovative, high-quality tooling and equipment solutions for a range of professional motorsport teams where criticality and urgency are essential. .
“There’s a reason top motorsport teams as early as the 1920s relied on Snap-on to propel their cars to victory lanes. Through research, development and innovation, Snap-on gives its products distinct advantages by pushing the boundaries of what is possible, said Jesus Arregui, Senior Vice President, Snap-on Incorporated and President, business group. “Through this collaborative relationship, Red Bull Powertrains is now able to tap into our 100+ year history of product innovation rooted in observational work to take their racing program to new heights. We are delighted with our partnership with Red Bull Powertrains. »
Christian Horner, Oracle Red Bull Racing Team Principal and CEO, and CEO of Red Bull Powertrains, said: “Our business has evolved significantly over the past 10 years. This new partnership with Snap-on is another example of how we choose only the most sophisticated partners to help us achieve our goal of winning more World Championships. With the hand and power tools that Snap-on will provide to our world class team at Red Bull Powertrains, I am very confident for our future.
