What about Made in England?
Which products are still proudly
Made in England?
In the last century, England was the world's manufactory, a title it has long since lost to the nations of the Far East. A "Made in England" badge on products is becoming a rarity, with more and more English firms moving operations abroad to save money.
But that doesn't mean that the English have given up. Far from it! All over England there are small and large producers who revive traditional products and methods of making them, who look at what's around them and use it.
If you want to find traditional English products to enjoy while visiting, or to take back home, then bookmark this page. As I scour the country for the best of English, I will update the page. If feasible, I'll also add any news and special offers that I may find.
So which products are still proudly "Made in England"?
Bentley Motorcars, a history?
Bentley Motors Limited is a British manufacturer of automobiles founded on 18 January 1919 by Walter Owen Bentley (known as W.O. Bentley or just "W.O."). Bentley had been previously known for his range of rotary aero-engines in World War I, the most famous being the Bentley BR1 as used in later versions of the Sopwith Camel. Since 1998, the company has been owned by the Volkswagen Group of Germany.
Demand for Bentley?
Demand had been so great, that the factory at Crewe was unable to meet orders despite an installed capacity of approximately 9500 vehicles per year; there was a waiting list of over a year for new cars to be delivered. Consequently, part of the production of the new Flying Spur, a four-door version of the Continental GT, was assigned to the Transparent Factory (Germany), where the Volkswagen Phaeton luxury car is also assembled. This arrangement ceased at the end of 2006 after around 1000 cars, with all car production reverting to the Crewe plant.
In April 2005, Bentley confirmed plans to produce a four seat convertible model—the Azure, derived from the Arnage Drophead Coupe prototype—at Crewe beginning in 2006. By the autumn of 2005, the convertible version of the successful Continental GT, the Continental GTC, was also presented. These two models were successfully launched in late 2006.
