Our friend Rody Roem at Tecnopower has sent us the bad news that he has had to close down operations due to not being able to generate enough sales for his engines. “TecnoPower is forced to stop the manufacturing of model racing engines for the simple reasons that we are not managing to generate enough sales to cover our costs and so cannot continue our existence as a real manufacturer. TecnoPower will officially close at December 2011”. The company which was started by the former RB front man in 2009 from the remnants of the GRP engine project, produced some good products, but unfortunately entered the market at the wrong time as even the bigger Italian engine manufacturers began to struggle.
The following announcement will be visible on our website from 04/11/2011
TecnoPower is forced to stop the manufacturing of model racing engines for the simple reasons that we are not managing to generate enough sales to cover our costs and so cannot continue our existence as a real manufacturer.
TecnoPower will officially close at December 2011
We will try to service our distributors in the best possible way until our closure and would like to apologize to any inconvenience caused with this announcement.
Me and my partners at Tecnomeccanica have put in a lot of time and financial efforts since August 2009 to get this project going, I think that the quality of our production is at the level where it should be but the economical situation dictates us differently.
Thank you again all for your trust in me and my partners during this adventure and I will try to serve you as best as I can untill the closure of TecnoPower.
For who is interested, the company and engine project(moulds, tooling, designs) are for sale!, you can contact us at team @ tecnopower-motor.com, only serious demands will be honored.
Sincerely, Rody Roem
