Primo Engineering


Based in Newbury in the UK, Primo Engineering Limited was founded
by Ash Appella and Phil Roper having collectively accrued 30+ year’s
experience designing and analysing high performance transmissions for
top tier motorsport covering Formula 1, LMP-1, Formula E, MotoGP,
WRC and many others.

Engineering experience beyond the world of motorsport includes high
speed epicyclic’s, single speed EV transmissions and multi speed hybrid
transmissions marrying powerful electric motors with traditional internal
combustion engines for performance road vehicles.

Building from these experiences Primo was established to offer agile,
responsive engineering solutions of a high quality to customers seeking
support for power transmission development and neighbouring

Utilising the same design and analysis principles and methodologies
developed for transmissions we’ve also supported customers with
projects in the following areas;
– Bespoke power transmission systems
– Forced lubrication systems
– High pressure hydraulic actuation systems
– Test and vehicle service equipment
– Electromechanical systems
– Driveline assemblies

Primo approach each project with our customers objectives in mind and
strive to meet their expectations delivering a high performance quality
product for the best value to suit their needs.

With a wealth of experience across the engineering team and equipped
with latest version of Siemens NX as our preferred CAD package we
pride ourselves on offering accelerated development of innovative
design solutions. We undertake a wide range of projects from
optimisation of transmission sub-assemblies through to clean sheet
design and verification of complete transmission systems.
Undertaken in parallel with design we identify the verification activities
needed to assure the integrity of our designs from the component level
right up to the complete assembly. For advanced verification activities
we use a range of proprietary software and in house developed tools.
