Normania 1996 – 2014
In 1996 the owner Imro Penders established the company Normania.
At 12 years old he started to work on custom made and prototyping parts to be used for scale model car races in the dutch championship, and a few years later at age of 15 he went to work for a design company to build prototypes for furniture and all kinds off products.
Went to prototyping school for 2 years than and when he finished that he started to work for Duvedec (dutch vehicle development centre) where he worked on the prototypes for the Mercedes slk, vito and trucks.
In 1996, after working for an other company, developing and prototyping cash machines, medical equipment, electric wheelchairs and carparts it was time to start his own business.
In the beginning the main business was to develop and prototype parts for other customers but then in 1998 the smartcar came on the market. As being a car enthusiast the idea was born to put up a smart car parts and tuning company, S-Mann was born than.
In the first place it was just some plastic parts like front spoilers and side skirts to work on. But then later exhausts, intercoolers and brakes got developed and manufactured to!
