In 2004, Cosworth was purchased by Jerry Forsythe and Kevin Kalkhoven, co-owners of the Champ Car World Series (the successor to CART). Under its new ownership Cosworth embarked on a diversification strategy, applying its expertise in mechanical engineering, performance electronics and precision manufacturing to secure business opportunities in the mainstream automotive, aerospace and defense industries.
In January 2011, the Motorsports Industry Associated (MIA) recognised Cosworth's diversification success with the inaugural New Markets Award. In November of the same year, Cosworth's success in high value-added manufacturing in the UK was rewarded with the prestigious RBS 2011 Manufacturer Of The Year Award.
In 2013 Cosworth announced plans for a major new factory at its Northampton home to coincide with its 50th anniversary in the town in 2014. The new facility will provide state-of-the-art flexible manufacturing systems to enable Cosworth to supply high-performance engines for premium sports car manufacturers and continue to deliver a "one-stop-shop" for performance products and technologies to the automotive, motorsport and retail aftermarket industries.
