Short story of Aston Martin
Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. Martin was a racer at Aston Hill near Aston Clinton and after these competitions, the duo decided to make their own cars. The first car to be entitled Aston Martin was produced in March 1915 by installing a four-cylinder Coventry-Simplex engine to the skeletons of a 1908 Isotta-Fraschin.
Martin joined the Admiralty and Bamford the Royal Army Service Corps when World War I began, leaving the car production in standby. After the war, the business was once again founded at Abingdon Road, Kensington and a new car was planned to carry the Aston Martin name. Bamford left in 1920 and the enterprise was restored with finance from Count Louis Zborowski. In 1922, Bamford & Martin manufactured vehicles to race in the French Grand Prix, which went on to set world speed and durability records at Brooklands.
In 1924 the enterprise went broke and was bought by Lady Charnwood, who put her son John Benson on the executive board. The business failed once again in 1925 and the factory closed the production in 1926, with Lionel Martin exit. Later that year, Bill Renwick, Augustus (Bert) Bertelli and financiers, including Lady Charnwood, took control of the enterprise.They renamed it Aston Martin Motors and moved it to the previous Whitehead Aircraft Limited factory in Feltham.
Between 1926 and 1937, Bertelli was both a technical manager and designer of all new Aston Martins. In 1936, Aston Martin decided to focus on road cars, manufacturing only 700 pieces until World War II began. Production changed to aircraft machinery during the war.
In 1947, tractor manufacturer David Brown Limited bought the company under the leadership of managing director Sir David Brow. In 1972, the enterprise was sold to Company Developments, in Birmingham group managed by William Wilson. The business was resold in 1975 by its receiver, succeeding a further insolvency to North American entrepreneurs George Minden and Peter Sprague for £1.05 million. A successful turn-around came in 1977, with 360 new workers and a trading profit of £750,000.
In 1982, Aston Martin was settled a Royal Warrant of Appointment by the Prince of Wales that still stands today. In the present, Aston Martin has a deal with Daimler AG to provide new Mercedes-AMG power plants for the next generation program.
