Ronin Engineering

Getting a new business venture off the ground is always a testing time, and Peter Moore has quickly come to appreciate the positive impact having a reliable supply network can make. Peter – who has worked in the automobile sector for many years – recently set-up Ronin Engineering along with his father, and the Derby-based company has already worked on a number of challenging classic car restoration and build projects.
Peter said: “It’s early days for the business, but we’re starting to establish an interesting portfolio of clients. Most of the work we have focused on to-date has been for pre-World War Two vehicles – predominantly luxury French manufacturers such as Bugatti, Delahaye and Delage.” He continued: “Whilst we are happy to consider all types of jobs, I guess we are developing ourselves a bit of niche and specialism in this area, and it’s important that we can source our parts from suppliers that are specialists in their own fields too.” Ronin and Robson Engineering have already successfully joined forces on a number of occasions, and Peter has nothing but praise for the connecting rod manufacturer.
Peter explained: “We’ve been impressed with the work that Robson have done for us so far. The quality of their components is very good, and they always keep closely in contact with us throughout each project. “We know that all we have to do is provide them with the dimensions and performance levels required, and they will supply us with exactly what we need.”
After nearly fifty years at the aero-engine giant, now-retired Rolls Royce CEO Sir Ralph Robins is someone who should know his stuff when it comes to mechanical excellence, and the man credited with turning round the company’s fortunes after taking the helm in 1984 entrusted Ronin Engineering with the restoration of his Delahaye 135/3500. Ronin and Robson collaborated on the project, helping to enable the successful completion of what was a complex challenge within a twelve month timescale. The Delahaye is viewed by many as the most beautiful car in the world, and Sir Ralph is still successfully racing his model in classic car rallies across the country. Peter concluded: “This Delahaye was the first project that we had involved Robson in, but since then they have also supplied the rods for other vehicles – including most recently for a vintage Delage – and they have been spot-on every time.” “I first chose them on the recommendation of an old boss of mine, who had used them previously when he was at Arrows/Cosworth. The motor sport industry is a pretty close-knit community, so a good reputation is key – and I can confidently say Robson continue to live up to theirs.”
