Brompton wins Queen's award for Enterprise

It's "completely barking" to manufacture bicycles in London, Brompton managing director Will Butler Adams joked when interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Today program (21st April 2010). He was being interviewed after the announcement that Brompton were one of the recipients of the 2010 UK Queen’s Awards For Enterprise. He also indicated that it took him "about 8.7 seconds" to fold his Brompton - not that he'd ever timed himself!
