BAC Mono moves to Liverpool

The BAC Mono is in the public eye this week after its impressive performance on Top Gear, but even without the publicity from Top Gear the brothers Brigg were already doing very well with the Mono. So well, they’ve been looking for new premises to continue their growth and have settled on a move from Cheshire to Liverpool (just up the road) and a new facility on the Speke Hall Industrial Estate in South Liverpool is set to become the new home of the Mono.

BAC’s new home in Speke will be up and running by the autumn, will create an additional 60 jobs in the local economy – and more in the supply chain – and is expected to turn out more than 100 Monos a year by 2015.

Neill Briggs, BAC’s MD, said:

We are thrilled at our relocation to Liverpool. The city has a rich history in the motor industry and we look forward to adding our own chapter to this success story.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mayor Anderson and his team for their support. Liverpool is a great place to do business, and with the wealth of highly skilled individuals in the region we believe we are perfectly positioned to take the company to the next level.

This expansion and job creation will allow us to meet sales demand around the world, and build on the fantastic interest Mono has received since it was launched. We are all extremely proud to say that ‘Mono is built in Liverpool.

The BAC Mono is also set to serve as an ambassador for Liverpool with the City brand emblazoned on the Monos bodywork as it blats round the world’s racetrack.

BAC may not offer Liverpool quite the employment and prestige Jaguar Land Rover does (JLR’s Halewood Plant is in Liberpool), but it’s a feather in the cap for Liverpool and a strong sign that BAC’s success with the Mono is set to continue.

And if you’re looking for a BAC Mono for sale, there is just one at the moment.
