Our story

SIA HCR was established in 2019, March 20, but its roots stretches back to 2015, when the first closed decks where made. We quickly understood that quality is what matters, so we asked Haas Automation to provide us with equipment that ensures the highest quality and precision.

In 2016 and early 2017 we outsourced machining services and closed decked around 10 cases. Because of outsourcing couldn’t bring the quality and short lead times, we started our own workshop.

In the autumn of 2017, we moved to more spacious premises and got our Haas VF-2 Vertical Machining Centre, which allowed us to grow our capacity and expand our services – line boring, mains pinning, thread making, cylinder boring etc.

Until now in the 2020, we have worked on around 300 engines and many more yet to come. We do it in the highest quality and precision.

We also provide Subaru long and short block assembly and can supply with all necessary parts for the build.

We use our experience and participate in circuit racing events with Formula Easter and take part in a drag race and track day events around the country and Europe with our Subaru Impreza.
