    What is known about this?

    Triumph will seek to reduce costs by taking almost all its motorcycle production from the United Kingdom to Thailand

    I've heard that the likes of Jaguar are switching their factories from Thailand to China now, again another cost cutting measure. I'm just wondering when it will go that way for Triumph too. :187:

    I got the short article from Webbikeworld that mentioned that Triumph is planning to move all of it's volume production models to Thailand.  That's not giving me a warm fuzzy feeling, and I'm sure their employees and customers in the UK are quite dismayed.  :110:

    Yes, obviously workers will be restless to know about their future.

    I have no idea if the factory is large or how many workers make it up.
