Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Morris Engines, the factory of Morris Motors Ltd., Engines Branch was located in Coventry, England. The company specialised in the mass production of engines and gearboxes, for fitment into vehicles made by the Nuffield Organisation. Morris Motors Ltd., Engines Branch was, therefore, partly responsible for the Nuffield Organization becoming Britain's leading motor manufacturer in the 1930s. The Hotchkiss company of France, who were makers of the famous machine gun, hurriedly transferred production to England during World War I when it looked as if their St. Denis factory near Paris was going to be overrun by the Germans. Consequently, a factory was erected at Gosford Street, Coventry, and both machines and key staff were brought over to England so that production could start as soon as possible.show more
