Triumph

When Triumph Engineering went into administration in 1983, the Triumph name was bought by enthusiastic property tycoon John Bloor, who had a 10 acre production facility built in Hinckley, Leicestershire in 1988. The new models went on sale in 1991, and by 2000, Triumph Motorcycles Ltd had broken even. Triumph employed 3000 people in 2006. They also have a factory in Thailand but models sold in the UK are all made at the Hinckley plant.

Caterham

Graham Nearn bought the rights to the Lotus Seven in 1973 when Lotus announced they would discontinue the model, and put it into low-volume production himself. Named after the Surrey town in which they were originally based, Caterham cars are available to buy complete or as a kit. Caterham moved to Dartford, Kent, in 1987.
