A NEW name in British bike manufacturing has made Leamington its home.
Metals and industrials group Liberty House bought the Trillion bicycle business last year and has now launched their own range of bikes.
The group hope to re-establish the manufacture of products in Britain which have largely migrated overseas in the past 40 years and has chosen Brake House on Tachbrook Road as its bicycle base, which will employ around 200 staff.
The launch of Liberty Trillion coincides with the 25th anniversary of Liberty’s launch by now executive chairman Sanjeev Gupta, who began his own working life selling bicycles for his father’s manufacturing business.
He said: “The launch is not only personally significant for me at this milestone in the company’s history, but it symbolises what I believe will become a renaissance of British manufacturing in the post-Brexit world.
“In the post-Brexit economic environment Britain needs its own independent and competitive industrial base so we must draw upon our heritage of engineering and manufacturing skill and innovation in order to re-establish a robust and integrated supply chain.
“This will allow us to capitalise on the exciting home-market and export opportunities which are now emerging.”
