I have been to the new norton manufacturing plant as a guest of the production manager.
I work with his brother when I go to the UK.
They have a really nice facility, with some impressive things.
His brother, who used to work at triumph says he managed the manufacturing rework area.
They had a full time group reworking things they didn't build right the first time. This was due to the fact that Triumphs manufacturing labor pool has been for years mostly eastern Europeans who work a few months than move onto something else.
This is basically the same as a u.s. Company employing illegal mexicans to build a product, it would tend to make you at least question the product quality.
The Norton shop is first class, haven't been to the triumph line bub I respect the guy that told me the above.
