Our History

Following a March 2017 IPO, SLPT was created to organize the automotive divisions under one business unit. The Global Pump, Valvetrain, Transmission, NEV E-Drive and SLETC Groups now work as one company to allow SLPT to take advantage of global engineering, development and manufacturing with strategic vertical integration and supply base to meet new and challenging customer requirements.
