Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) transfers headquarters to Liverpool

Article by Anita Panait, on December 20, 2013

Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) has opened its new headquarters and manufacturing facility in Liverpool. The 11,000-sq. ft. facility was officially opened by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, who supported BAC's relocation to the city through his Mayoral Investment Fund. The opening also marks the commencement of the production of the BBC Top Gear Stig’s Car of the Year – BAC Mono - considered as the first road-legal, single-seat production car in the world. The facility in Speke Hall Industrial Estate, Speke, will be building around 100 cars annually by 2015 and will create around 60 local, high-end manufacturing jobs, including apprenticeships, as well as new regional supply chain opportunities.

BAC's move to Liverpool and the production of its niche, high-performance supercar are considered a major boost for the city and are expected to boost the City Region’s reputation in auto production, following the success of Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant.

“We’ve worked hard for over a year, through my Mayoral Investment Fund, to bring BAC to Liverpool, and I’m absolutely delighted that it’s now all systems go for their first-class manufacturing facility," Anderson remarked.

He remarked that new BAC manufacturing facility will create new jobs, new apprenticeships and new supply chain opportunities. Anderson noted that Liverpool being home to a supercar like the BAC Mono "adds an extra dimension" to their "automotive offer" and will bring a real boost to the sector.“
