Brompton Bicycle of London was this morning visited by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.

As the UK’s largest bicycle manufacturer, Brompton’s factory in West London was deemed an ideal venue to discuss the growth figures released by the Office for National Statistics earlier today.

The chancellor was met by Brompton's sales and Marketing director Emerson Roberts.

Roberts said: “We are pleased that our work here in West London attracts a lot of positive attention. These are tough times for the global economy, but companies like Brompton show that it is possible to exploit opportunities in any climate, in our case by focusing on quality and by addressing imaginatively the needs of consumers.”

Brompton has experienced high levels of growth in recent years, both domestically and internationally. Exports have been particularly strong, accounting for 75 percent of output over the last three months.
