Langcourt Ltd. was established in the South West of England in 1984 to offer a repair service for chrome, nikasil™, and electrofusion™ coated engine cylinder bores. Most of the cylinders that we saw in those early days were from road racing bikes, dirt bikes and shifter karts.Over the years, we have developed our processes but have kept to our specialty of cylinder plating and repair work. The range of applications has grown, but we have resisted the temptation to get involved in porting, crank rebuilding and other specialized "tuning" work to focus on what we know and understand.
We have worked on cylinders ranging from radio controlled model airplanes and UAV’s to offshore racing boats and Formula 1 cars, and we have the knowledge and expertise to solve your cylinder problem. Several of our earliest employees are still with us, now with a wealth of experience that enhances our ability to answer almost any customer query and ensuring the very best in quality and customer service.
In 1994 we opened a purpose built facility in Auburn, Alabama to service the American market, and in 1999 we were proud to be able to announce a joint venture in Vancouver, British Columbia, to expand our services still further. An additional production facility was opened in late 2007 in New Zealand and is proving to be a great success, serving customers in Australia and South East Asia as well as New Zealand itself. Our processes are also used in Argentina and Brazil.
Since April 2014, the business in Auburn, Alabama has been operated under license by a completely independent business, Langcourt Performance Inc. - a new name but the same great service and commitment to quality.
We try hard to offer a quick and efficient service, and most orders are completed within 4 to 6 working days. Our target is to give our customers a consistent 5 working day turnaround, but schedules may change depending on workload, and so if turnaround time is very important to you, contact us for the latest information.
Here in the USA, we are conveniently located in the heart of the South East in Auburn, Alabama, about 120 miles south west of Atlanta.
Our location means that over 60% of the entire US population is within 2-days shipping time using UPS Ground. This map shows approximate UPS Ground transit times (in working days) from Auburn. FedEx Ground transit times are similar.
