Tygan Motor Company is an exciting new company, launched at the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Tygan is dedicated to manufacturing the highest quality replica classic sports cars in Europe.
A private consortium of classic sports car enthusiasts has announced the launch of Tygan Motor Company Ltd, a wholly new British manufacturer of very high quality classic replica sports cars. The group behind Tygan consists of a number of highly successful, prominent businessmen and women, who are passionate about classic sports cars, but who also have extensive experience of running profitable businesses from a diverse range of industries.
To provide the foundation of the business, Tygan has purchased the assets from Tygan which was founded in the late 1980s, and established its reputation as a manufacturer of replicas of the 1950s Porsche 356 Speedster, based on VW Beetle components.
Tygan has immediately invested in purpose-fitted new premises and manufacturing facilities in order to more than double the output of cars per month. Tygan has also retained the staff of the old company, and supplemented these with its own board of Directors. Tygan will initially retain production solely of the Speedster and Spyder models, although it is immediately reviewing its component suppliers and manufacturing processes and implementing ISO9000 standards in production in order to guarantee an improvement in the quality of the products.
Tygan's Chairman is Graham Lee. Graham is an experienced Managing Director, Chief Executive and Chairman with an impeccable track record in the computing, defence, technology and manufacturing markets.
He has considerable experience in the acquisitions and disposals of small and medium-sized companies and has specialised in Sales and Marketing strategies for a range of SME's and PLC's.
Graham won the HTV / Institute of Directors 1993 Businessman of the year award, was a finalist in the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Business of the year awards 1996 and a member of the delegation with the Minister of Trade representing UK industry in China 1997. He is also Co-Founder and Chairman of Synergie Business Ltd.
The board consists of a professional top team of experienced directors from the fields of accountancy, investment, and successful entrepreneurs.
"We are delighted to be able to announce the formation of Tygan, which will, quite simply, become the dominant supplier of classic sports car replicas in the UK and Europe," says Graham Lee. "In keeping with my fellow Directors I am as passionate about classic sports cars as I am about building successful businesses. All my fellow board members are successful business people who have a thorough understanding of business dynamics, marketing and manufacturing. Tygan will create a new breed of timeless motoring and will have an over-riding emphasis on quality. Everything that emerges from this factory will have been through rigorous processes, will carry our reputation and will be worthy of our badge."
"Tygan will migrate a cottage industry into a professional automotive manufacturer. We will add to the product portfolio with the addition of further models, building on the heritage of sports cars that maintain the customer's desire own a timeless classic that makes a clear statement of individuality," Graham concludes.
Tygan is a new breed, a company that recreates the best cars of the past and builds them to the most exacting modern standards, with craftsmanship levels of quality. Although we are a new company we have manufacturing staff with impeccable skill and a management team that not only has a grand vision for the future, but also the experience and resources to make it happen.
