Norton invest further with in house manufacture facilities.
Today we have taken delivery of another brand new Hardinge CNC Milling machine, the machine will be put straight to work make billets parts for the Commando 961 platform.
Continued investment in manufacturing resource is necessary to retain our British parts supply, it’s been well documented that we have had many long delays waiting for British suppliers to deliver.
Unfortunately we lost our Motorcycle industry many years ago and it’s taking a huge effort to bring it back, bringing more parts manufacture in house gives us control of quality and delivery.
We will be investing further in our in house manufacture capability going forwards, which will retain and build upon our British component list. It is important to Norton that we have a hand built British bike, however difficult this may be given the loss of the industry many years ago.
