Brompton Bicycles

Brompton Bicycle is the leading British manufacturer of folding bicycles. They are all made in Brompton’s factory in Greenford, West London.

The Brompton folding bicycle and accessories are the company’s core product, noted for its self-supporting compact size when stored.

Most recently Brompton Electric was launched.

Brompton is the largest volume bicycle manufacturer in Britain, producing approximately 70,000 bicycles each year.

Luke Johnson / Risk Capital backed Brompton in 2015 to support the growth of this rapidly growing business.

Why we invested:

  • Brompton is exported to more than 30 countries.
  • Cycling in cities is growing because it gives people independence, freedom and is a sustainable, healthy form of transport.
  • Brompton’s unique fold means it is perfectly positioned for those city workers who want to commute via bicycle.
  • Brompton is growing through sales direct to consumer sales and through its own Brompton Junction chain of stores.
