At Holt Lloyd, we’re proud that our products are developed, tested and manufactured here in the UK. We have a lab in Manchester where our highly skilled and experienced Research and Development team make sure each of our products perform for you on the road.

Meet The Team

Phil Carruthers, Research & Development Manager

As our Research and Development Manager, Phil oversees all operations at the lab. Having been with Holts for 10 years, it’s safe to say that whatever Phil doesn’t know about Holts products, isn’t worth knowing!

“I enjoy working in R&D due to the variety of products we work on, I get to combine my interest in cars with my job and each day is different from the last.

Not to mention that it’s always good to see something you developed on a retailer’s shelf.”

Qaswar Naqvi, Research and Development Chemist

Qaswar is one of our Research and Development Chemists and has been with Holts for just over 3 years. Qaswar is our Repair and Maintenance expert, looking after products including Radweld and Tyreweld from the Holts brand.
