Triumph Birmingham is to close at the end of this month after failing to secure new premises at the end of its lease.

Owner Chris Booth commented: “I would like to thank all the staff at Triumph Birmingham and the team at Triumph for their support over the years. We’ve been unable to secure alternative premises following the expiry of our current tenancy arrangements and have made the difficult decision to discontinue trading in the Midlands and will be concentrating on our interests in the North-West.”

Triumph Birmingham was owned by a group comprising Ducati dealerships in Manchester, Preston and Stoke.

In a statement, Triumph UK confirmed it would not be renewing its contract with Triumph Birmingham by mutual agreement. “Going forward, Triumph will seek new premises and partners in the region to maintain customer support.

“All existing warranties will still be valid across the Triumph dealer network.

“As Triumph restructures in the area, further announcements will be made with regards to new partners and locations. Triumph UK would like to thank the team at Triumph Birmingham for their support over the previous 10 years and wish them all the best for the future.”

The closure of Triumph Birmingham leaves the Hinckley manufacturer with open points in the east and west of the city, the west being vacant since the loss of Stratstone in 2016.

A spokesman added: “We are in dialogue with a few people so hopefully it won’t be long before we have both sides of the city covered.”
