All about us
Rayne Automotive has always had one simple principle to operate from; the customer comes first. This is why we design and tailor products not just for each individual vehicle, but for every customer. We believe that you shouldn’t have to always buy “off the shelf” products and then have to modify them to fit your vehicle.
So please contact us with your requirements and we will do our very best to make sure you receive exactly what you need, right from great customer service, to a product that exceeds expectations.
Rayne Automotive Ltd. started out in 2009, founded by the father and son team Kevin and James, only back then it was known as K&R Automotive. Since then, it has flourished into Rayne Automotive, still a family-run business only now we have more friends and family to help produce our products. With the teams’ background being centred around the electronics & automotive industry as well as production management. It was a natural progression that led the company from its simple beginnings of vehicle diagnostics and repair to a design and product-based business, now recognised nationwide as a quality brand.
Quickly after beginning, the business soon outgrew its’ first premises, the single garage we used as our workshop to start off with. So the time had come, we carefully cleared a plot and built our new, specifically designed workshop which worked well for us over 2 years. As we served more clients and built up relationships with converters across Europe and even some further afield, we have had to relocate to our current, significantly larger, premises; in which the walls are straining a little bit, packed with products.
Meet the team
The first port of call here at Rayne Automotive is normally James; chances are if you phone up or email us, you will get through to him. James started out as a Bentley and Mercedes auto technician, before heading off to University to study business management, people and marketing. James is also the primary designer of our systems and provides any advanced technical support you might need.
From here, your order will be passed over to the workshop, for either Richard, Jess, Emma, Steve or Heather, our technicians, to make sure every last piece of the product is exactly right for you and your vehicle. Richard is a former air-cooled and early water-cooled VW restoration expert, so he knows his stuff. He also doubles as our in-house professional photographer. Emma and Jess and Steve are hugely important members of the team, having been with us for just over 4 years each, Jess has recently taken the role of "workshop manager". They have all been trained up by quality control Kevin or chief technician Richard to make products as good as everyone else. Heather is the newest member of the team, in her second time around at Rayne Automotive, she processes the orders and non-technical aftersales support, basically, she ensures everything is just perfect for you.
After these guys have meticulously crafted and finished your products, it is passed to Kevin, a Marconi-trained operative. Kevin is, as he was there, quality control manager, he also doubles as a technician, making sure that you receive your products on time.
As well as our in-house team, we have a carefully selected group of companies with who we work closely to ensure that Rayne Automotive gets your products right, first time and every time.
