A Brief Look at SU Carburetors History
Although the Skinner brothers, Herbert and Carl, patented their innovative variable venturi design in 1906, it was not until 1910 that they finally succeeded in founding Skinner Union Company Limited. This is how the famous SU carburetors were officially born.
Unfortunately, the company began its activities in a stormy era, just before World War I which forced the Skinner brothers to make the decision to sell the business in 1936 to their main client, Morris Motors. The new company, SU Carburetor Company Limited, part of the Morris organization was much more fortunate, as it soon became the official supplier of MG vehicles, as well as a major supplier of Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Rover, Riley, etc. Turner, Austin, Jaguar, Triumph, Volvo, and the Saab 99.
Its high quality and reliability, in addition to being a major supplier of the most luxurious and sophisticated vehicles of its time, earned SU carburetors a reputation that they retain to this day.
