After a tour of the Norton Technology Centre and seeing the 961 Commando being built in the workshop, the group enjoyed an informal and entertaining Q&A with CEO Stuart Garner. The visit was brought to an end with an unexpected treat when Ian Morgan, Production Manager, rolled the 2012 TT racer out into the sunlight. The sound of the Norton SG1 must have been ringing in everyone’s ears as they made the trip home.
The Bradford University Staff Association (BUSTA) returned today for a tour of the Norton factory.
BUSTA Chairman, Steve Jenkins who was here a year ago, brought along more of his colleagues who didn’t get the opportunity last year. The group consisted widely of motorcycle enthusiasts, with others generally wanting to learn more about British manufacturing.
Since our Facebook page was created on the 29th November 2009, we’ve established a regular link to bring the latest news and feedback from the Norton factory.
Starting with our historic timeline, we endeavour to keep visitors to the site updated with breaking news stories, recent activities and current information.
As we look through the archives, March 2010 saw Jonathan Hewitt take delivery of the first ever Commando 961 SE. Since then, volumes have increased and we continue to deliver the Commando 961 series to customers across the globe.
