HISTORY OF RPM TECHNIK
RPM Technik was established in 2001 by company founder Ollie Preston. Specialising in service and maintenance exclusively for Porsche models, this is a core value never to be deviated from. Technical director, Ollie began his Porsche career as a technician working on air-cooled Porsche models within the specialist marketplace. After almost ten years of learning his craft, he set up his own specialist business from a rented single car lockup. A few years later moving down the site into a slightly larger and more salubrious establishment, able to accommodate three Porsches with a little more parking!
Commercial director Darren Anderson joined the organisation in 2005. Darren’s dealings with Ollie came through his interaction as a client of RPM Technik, being an owner of multiple 944 Turbos. After a successful early career as a Mechanical Engineer in the oil and gas industry, Darren’s background and experience in business management brought Ollie’s dream to life as they grew and finessed the operation. The following six years were focused on recruiting the best technical team in the Porsche specialist network and then moving into the existing purpose-built unit in 2011.
The last member of the RPM Technik team of Directors was in the shape of Greig Daly, who was, as you guessed, a previous client of RPM Technik. An owner of a 964 at the time, both Darren and Ollie persuaded Greig to join from the main dealer network where he had previously been working with Porsche, Audi and BMW. Greig completed the line-up in 2012, when he took the position of Sales Director, bringing his experience in sales and marketing. Thereafter the team set about the task of becoming Europe’s leading specialist in Porsche servicing and sales.
The company employs 23 very talented individuals, who are all industry leaders in their field, able to provide clients with not only the best technical services but crucially the best advice on taking your Porsche to the next level. We have two Mantra’s that we employ to all things we do. “Engineering Exhilaration” is our key deliverable to our clients. Internally we have a supporting mantra of “No Excuses”.
2017 saw RPM Technik become a member of the Porsche Partner Network, providing RPM Technik with two PIWIS 3 Porsche laptops which allow factory diagnostics support as well as daily updates from Porsche Technical. Essential to enable RPM Technik to maintain the latest generation of Porsches. In 2019 RPM Technik began working with Manthey, a subsidiary of Porsche AG, to provide UK owners of Manthey products access to servicing and ongoing track support as well as the ability to build full Manthey GT cars. Manthey is the most successful Porsche racing team ever and renowned for their record-breaking lap times at the infamous Nurburgring.
The premises has eight service ramps, two indoor car showrooms, a dedicated seven-bay engine and gearbox building facility, Beissbarth geometry bay and four-poster ramp, Manthey trackside geometry equipment, client waiting area for up to eight people, dedicated ‘Special projects and restorations’ department with space for up to seven Porsches. The secure compound houses parking bays for 50 service cars and the whole site is protected by 24/7/365 manned security.
