British Motor Heritage goes independent

British Motor Heritage Limited, the classic car component business, based in Witney, Oxfordshire and owned by BMW Group since 1994, has been sold to three automotive industry professionals, David Bishop, Neil Morrick and John Yea, collectively having over 60 years experience with the former Rover Group, reports MG World's David Knowles.

David Bishop, who developed the business between 1985-95 and returns to the role of Managing Director, said “Our main assets are a skilled team, a knowledgeable worldwide network and the use of valued trademarks and unique tooling”.

Neil Morrick, Chairman added “We are grateful to BMW and MG Rover for their positive support and will be developing our relationships with both companies”.

Professor Werner Saemann, member of the BMW Group Board of Management, said of the new owners “They made the strongest bid for the business and we look forward to seeing British Motor Heritage Limited prosper under their ownership”.

At MG Rover Group, Deputy Chairman, Nick Stephenson commented “We are pleased that the rich heritage of MG Rover Brands is in safe hands, and we wish the new venture every possible success”.

Established in 1983, British Motor Heritage Limited manufactures parts for a number of classic cars including complete bodyshells. These include the MGB, MG Midget, Austin-Healey Sprite, Triumph TR6 and now the Mini Classic. In addition, British Motor Heritage Limited distributes parts for these and other models via a worldwide network of Approved Specialists to provide a comprehensive service to classic car owners.
