New MD for motorhome soundproofing specialist Noisekiller

8644a46c-675f-4033-96a4-28d9f1d3cbb6

Steve Bithell, founder and managing director of the Noisekiller Group, which specialises in soundproofing for motorhomes as well as selling the Clutch Claw anti-theft device, retired on 1 January, handing over the reins to his son Grant.

Steve started Noisekiller back in 2001, when the only options for soundproofing motorhomes and cars was to use felts or carpet undelay. Steve told us that "Neither of which had much science in their design and did not really give much sound reduction."

Talking to a foam product manufacturer, he realised that by combining foam with heavy duty outer damping layers, he could achieve a better noise reduction product. Noisekiller then designed a pre-cut kit which would be easily installed in a motorhome. An article in MMM and subsequent attendance at the 2004 Peterborough motorhome show generated a lot of interest. Since then Noisekiller has expanded and now offers over 600 different vehicle patterns for both motorhomes and cars. 

In 2006 Noisekiller acquired security company Centinel, incorporating its products into the range. This company's most notable product, the Clutch Claw (it locks the pedals in place) was revamped and relaunched.

Recently, Noisekiller has designed a new, easier to fit soundproofing kit for Fiat Ducato and Peugeot Boxer models from 2014 onwards, which we expect to be launched at this year's Peterborough show in April 2021. The company is also launching a new range of motorhome cab floor mats that can be vacuumed, brushed or jet washed.

Although Steve is handing over the reins to son Grant, who has been with the business since 2006, he is taking semi-retirement and will still be helping out with shows, adding: "Grant is now the driving force looking after the new products and maintaining Noisekiller Group at the forefront of the market."

Grant says: "I am keen to launch this new easy to fit Noisekiller kit and know it will help to give the motorhome enthusiasts a way to reduce those annoying noises. You travel a lot of miles in a motorhome and this will make that journey more of a pleasure than a chore by reducing engine noise, road noise and door rattles, allowing you to hear your radio, mobile communications and mostly each other without shouting."
