Market Leaders Since 1963
Corbeau Seats Ltd was the first motorsport seat manufacturer in the world. The original Corbeau Equip was launched back in 1963 by original owner Colin Folwell. Colin found that standard road seats in his race car did not offer the support nor protection required by the tremendous speeds being produced by race cars at the time. Therefore; he developed the first ever race car seat here in East Sussex, where Corbeau Seats still proudly produce road and race seats.
Fast forward to 2017 and 54 years on, we are still proud to be manufacturing motorsport, classic and road seats to our high internal standards, ensuring we continue to keep drivers and passengers safe. Since its acquisition in 2011 by CMC group, which embraces not only Corbeau Seats but Luke Harnesses, Corbeau Motorsport Engineering and Corbeau Racewear, we have gone from strength to strength.
Corbeau has some great racing heritage and in 1992 we became the first British manufacturer to acquire FIA homologation on our motorsport seats. Fast forward 25 years and 2016 saw us launch our biggest achievement to date, the introduction of our new FIA 8862-2009, 10 year homologated, Predator seat.
Over the years Corbeau has not only focused on the motorsport market, we expanded our reach to catering for a wide array of aftermarket seating, from classic cars to highly modified machines and everything in between. We now supply marine, stadium and office seating.
Founded back in 1975 by John Hansford, Luke Harnesses has a strong reputation to complement its market-leading status. Corbeau purchased LUKE in 2003 and is proud of the heritage that accompanies the brand with prestigious clients such as Caterham, Radical, and Donkervoort
LUKE does not only cater to motorsport client’s but can also offer bespoke harnesses for off-road vehicles, light aircraft and construction vehicles.
Our main aim is to keep both drivers and passenger safe, but alongside our seat and LUKE Harness range, we also manufacture high-performance stainless steel brake lines, can supply you with the latest FHR systems, Walero Cooling underwear and we are official distributors for Safe Solvents parts cleaner, one of the best parts cleaners on the market today.
We pride ourselves on using the highest quality UK components from a network of trusted suppliers which gives us the ability to offer so many bespoke options to you. Along with our in-house design, strict quality control and adhering to the ISO 9001-2008 Industry Standard, we hope you love your product as much as we do.
