Brompton is a highly respected British manufacturer of bespoke folding bikes, each bike being hand made in the London factory. For many owners of our bikes, Brompton is part of their lifestyle and an expression of who they are. We enjoy riding our bikes too and we’re proud of their success around the world.
Brompton wants to transform cities. By providing the means to commute or explore, with a bike that you can take anywhere, we can change the way people live in cities creating happier and healthier lives for our customers. Our high-quality products, combined with the resurgence in cycling, means that we are enjoying strong, sustained revenue growth of 20%+ over the past 3 years. COVID has accelerated the demand for cycling in cities around the world and lifted our ambition to grow global sales from c. £90m today to over £250m within the next 5 years.
We continue to make the Brompton in West London, where we started in 1975, but our product has travelled far - we now export 80% of our bicycles to 45 countries. In recent years we have invested in a new purpose-built production facility, transformed our digital architecture, opened new flagship stores, launched our ecommerce platform and had our biggest product launch in company history - and we’re not stopping there. To truly deliver on our purpose, we need passionate, innovative, and talented people that want to challenge the status quo and make an impact.
