How Ralloy Was Established

Roy Jarvis, a qualified mechanical engineer and devout motor-rallying competitor, founded Ralloy Engineering Limited in 1988.

Following training served in all engineering skills with the Vickers Engineering organisation, Roy branched out on his own and began specialising in converting standard cars, from basic shell upwards, to fully built, restored rally specification cars. Though gaining experience on a wide variety of vehicle conversions, Roy developed a particular speciality in the conversion of Ford Escort MkI’s and MkII’s to various levels of rally specification with, over the years, many cars completed to full Group 4 specification and beyond. Roy’s expertise and drive for engineering excellence is the backbone of Ralloy Engineering; the Company now employing three full time engineers, experts in their own right in rally vehicle conversion and fabrication of competition components.

The success of any rally car is highly dependant on the reliability and performance of all of its sub-components and piece parts. Ralloy prepared Escorts have been and continue to be used at the highest levels of competition by some of the fastest exponents of the rally driving art. Over a period of some 20 years involvement in competition at these levels, Ralloy has constantly developed the performance and reliability of every aspect of primarily Escort MkII Group 4 chassis and shell conversions. A spin-off to this fabricated component development, for its own conversions, is Ralloy’s long-term involvement in the production of those same high-quality, tested component parts (mainly fabricated components) to other car preparers, whether private individuals or other specialist companies.

Ralloy Engineering Limited today has sited its own, purpose-built production facilities at Sheriff Hutton in North Yorkshire (UK). The company carries a comprehensive stock of all its catalogued parts and is constantly developing and introducing new tried-and-tested items. We always aim to put ourselves in our customer's shoes - we feel this is the only way to offer a level of service all parties will be 100% satisfied with. It is not in our interest to have dissatisfied customers, so if there is anything we can help out with, just get in touch!

We make our refund and returns policy as fair as possible - nobody likes buying something to find it won't fit, or isn't suitable, and you can't send it back! More details of this are in the Terms & Conditions section of the website.

Similarly, another aspect of online/mail order shopping we are against is over-the-top postage prices. All postage prices are calculated by weight, not how difficult or time-consuming it is to wrap your order & believe me some are quite a challenge!

We also aim to offer the same level of service no matter what country you are from. Overseas orders are welcomed, and we charge postage/shipping in the same manner as UK orders. Additional Terms and Conditions apply for non UK-mainland purchases, please look at the Terms & Conditions section for more details.
