DENSO established its first operations base in Europe in 1973 but it was almost 20 years before DENSO established DENSO Manufacturing UK (originally known as NIPPONDENSO Manufacturing Limited) in Telford in 1990. The plant was constructed at a greenfield location within easy reach of vehicle manufacturers such as Toyota, Honda, Rover, Jaguar and Land Rover.
Throughout the 1990s DMUK gradually expanded its product portfolio and as demand for our products grew DMUK as a facility was expanded bringing tens of millions of pounds of inward investment to Telford and Wrekin. This investment continues today.
Using state of the art technology in a just-in-time environment DMUK carries out a wide variety of manufacturing processes to produce plastic mouldings, aluminium pressings, heat exchangers and pipe and hose components. These supply in-house final assembly lines and kitting operations before delivery to internal warehousing and despatch areas.
DMUK is the largest UK based manufacturing facility for DENSO and supplies HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) units, radiators, and ECMs (Engine Cooling Modules) to a distinguished portfolio of vehicle manufacturers located across the UK, Europe and Internationally.
DMUK is a Green Business Award Winner and a zero-landfill operation since 2006. DMUK works hard to maintain its reputation as an active community citizen and works collaboratively with a number of key local charitable organisations and works locally and regionally with a number of educational establishments.
