Boris Johnson Visits Brompton Bicycle

LONDON, UK – To promote the UK capital’s business successes outside the Square Mile, and to see the role businesses like Brompton play in supporting London’s economy, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, visited the Brompton Bicycle factory in West London.

Boris Johnson is known in the UK and abroad as the bicycling Mayor after the introduction of the Barclays-liveried “Boris’s bikes” rental system last year.

After paying Fuller’s Brewery a visit in Chiswick, the Mayor rode on a Brompton bicycle with Brompton’s Managing Director, Will Butler-Adams, for the short ride to the factory in Brentford. Here he met several members of Brompton’s staff and the manufacturing facility.

Boris said of the visit: “Here Brompton are building their bikes by the Great West Road; it’s just a great example of the diversity of manufacturing found here in London.”

Will said: “It is fantastic to have the Mayor of London visit the factory and see what we are doing first hand. We take great pride in making a quality product here in the capital, and getting Boris in the saddle was a great way to demonstrate the product. We had a lot of fun on the ride from Chiswick; I think he really liked the bike!”
