The change to fuel injection in various forms for nearly all new vehicles saw carburetter manufacture decline to very small volumes, most of which were for the service market, and this led to S.U negotiating with Burlen Fuel Systems Ltd (its major parts customer and already a small volumes manufacturer in its own right) to take over the responsibility for manufacture and supply of all S.U carburetter units, pumps and spares, May 1999 saw the end, after ninety four years of the manufacture of carburetters by the descendant of the original S.U company, and the closure of Wood Lane, Birmingham; as a manufacturing plant. During the next three years, manufacture of the of all carburetters, fuel pumps and some throttle bodies passed to Burlen Fuel Systems Ltd and in 2002 Burlen acquired the intellectual property rights and the S.U trademark. Burlen is now the world's sole manufacturer of genuine, new S.U product, and can supply new carburetters, pumps and spares for almost all models from 1930 to the present day. The company has invested heavily in new tooling where replacement has been necessary and to reintroduce models that have not been available for many years. Quality assured to BS5750 (ISO9002), Burlen has a policy to produce genuine, new S.U product to the original specification or better where new metallurgy, manufacturing techniques or materials allow. Now in 2007 the 'S.U Carburetter Company' is back and trading as a subsidiary and trading arm of Burlen Fuel Systems Ltd and along with the 'AMAL Carburetter Company' supplies fuelling products to vintage and classic cars and motorcycles around the world." Update to "In 2007 the SU Carburettor Company was reincorporated as a subsidary of Burlen Ltd.
