Briggs Automotive Company(BAC), a British automobile manufacturer, has opened a new production facility in Liverpool, England. The new production plant should help create sixty new manufacturing jobs, apprenticeship opportunities and regional supplier opportunities.

The 11,000 sq ft facility, in the Speke Hall Industrial Estate in Britain, will enable the company to produce approximately 100 Monos annually by 2015. The BAC Mono is the sole product to come out of the company as of now. It is a single seater performance car featuring high strength carbon fibre composite construction over a steel chassis. The car is powered by a 2.3 litre 285 bhp four-cylinder Cosworth engine which powers the Mono to 100kmph from a standstill in 2.8 seconds flat, up to a top speed of 275 kmph.

“Everyone at BAC is thrilled and full of pride about our move to Liverpool – the new home of the Mono supercar. This fantastic facility - allied with the recruitment of highly skilled individuals - will allow us to meet sales demand from across the globe", said Neill Briggs, BAC co-founder.

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson also remarked, "We’ve worked hard for over a year, through my Mayoral Investment Fund, to bring BAC to Liverpool, and I’m absolutely delighted that it’s now all systems go for their first-class manufacturing facility. I can’t wait for production of the Mono to officially get underway."
