2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Drew Price Engineering and to celebrate the milestone they're embarking on a project to revitalize the image of DPE in various ways, starting with a new name.

"The plan is nearing completion now and I am pleased to say DPE is much more in the hands of young enthusiastic leaders who are now playing vital roles and who will lead the company into the future.

"In choosing a new name we decided to use the word 'Technology' because there is one key factor that makes us unique in the Australian karting industry, and that is the fact that we are not simply a buyer and seller of products - we are an Australian manufacturer employing a sizeable workforce who manufacture nothing but karts and karting equipment.

"We are extremely proud that our skills and in-house technology are used to manufacturer karts and karting products that compete strongly with the best the world has to offer, so why not say it within our name.

"DPE also represent and distribute the products of over 50 well respected karting brands from all around the globe, something we are equally proud of."

As of the 1st July, 2013 the new company name will be 'DPE Kart Technology P/L'. In a letter to dealers, Drew said the change "will have no effect on our business relationships".

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our existing customers and also our many past customers for their support because without you we would have never reached this 40th milestone.
