NEW WEST MIDLANDS PLANT FOR NORTON

Norton’s new state-of-the-art production site in Solihull will open shortly, following a multi-million pound investment by its Indian parent TVS Motor. This will be the most advanced manufacturing facility in the 122-year-old motorcycle brand’s history.

These premises will be the central hub for all Norton operations, providing a permanent base for staff. It will be home to design, engineering, purchasing, sales, marketing and support teams, as well as the skilled production team that is resuming manufacture of motorcycles. Some of the specialist tooling and equipment previously used at Donington has been carried over to the new site but it’s also benefiting from substantial new investment.

Norton will resume production of the Commando Classic model at Solihull, building a limited quantity to honour customers who had ordered and paid a deposit on these bikes. Production of the V4SS will commence soon.

Commenting on this announcement, TVS Motor joint managing director Sudarshan Venu said: “The opening of the new headquarters represents a significant step forward for Norton. It will create the foundations for a sustainable long-term future. The new bikes will meet the world class standards our customers expect.

“We are excited to be moving into our new home and we are delighted this has been created by the Norton and TVS teams in just nine months. This new facility, underpinned by strong quality processes, will produce bikes truly worthy of the illustrious Norton brand.”
