Montupet is a French manufacturer for the automotive sector, with manufacturing plants in France, Spain, Mexico, Bulgaria and Northern Ireland.

It is the second largest independant manufacturer of cylinder heads in the world.

Montupet UK has been based in Northern Ireland since 1989 and manufacturers cast aluminium cylinder heads for engines going into Ford, Peugot, Citroen, Volvo, Fiat, Mazda and Jaguar vehicles. The plant currently delivers its products into engine plants based in the UK, France, Turkey, South Africa and China.

It is currently engaged in a new investment programme to produce engines for small fuel-efficient, high-volume, low-emission family vehicles.

In 2011 the plant was running at near full capacity with the investments made coming on stream. This resulted in a significant increase in turnover, year on year.
