The country’s legendary two-wheeler manufacturer TVS Motors bought Britain’s 122-year-old bike maker Norton in April last year. Norton is a prestigious British brand known for its luxurious bikes around the world.
With a multi-million pound investment, TVS will create the most advanced and modern headquarters in the 122-year history of Norton Motorcycle in the UK’s Solihull.
Norton will resume the production of its prestigious Commando Classic bike from March. This bike will be given to those customers who have already booked it from the company. With the complete opening of the plant at Solihull in Birmingham by the end of March this year, the production of V4SS is also expected to commence. Previously, Norton’s headquarters was in Donnington Hall in Britain which has now been completely shifted to Solihull.
The campus will be a permanent base for all the employees of Norton and will also operate as the head office of the design team, engineering team, sales, and marketing team as well as production teams. However, most of the specific tooling and equipment are being sought from Donnington Hall.
On this, TVS joint managing director Sudarshan Venu said, “The inauguration of the new headquarters is an important step for Norton motorcycles. The opening of the headquarters with this sophisticated facility will form the foundation for a long-term future for Norton. The new bike will meet world-class standards as expected by our customers. ”
West Midlands Mayor Andy Street expressed happiness over the opening of Norton’s global headquarters in Solihull, he said, “The arrival of Norton’s global headquarters, Solihull, is a real vote of confidence in our region as we are recovering from the Corona epidemic. It is a matter of great pride for Birmingham and Solihull that Norton has made a comeback in his home town after more than a decade. ‘
