The 22,000 sq-ft Brompton Bicycle factory is on an industrial site nestled between railway lines and a motorway. The brazing, assembly and engineering areas share one building with the office space, and most of us, from bike builders to the managing director, use a Brompton ourselves, so we have a good feel for how the product should be. We give great attention to training on the shop floor and every operator is always made aware of how every job he or she does contributes to the finished product. from core 77
