1 of 3

Bolton-based CCM Motorcycles are busy celebrating record growth across 2019, after sales more than quadrupled in the last 12 months.

Equating to a turnover of more than £17 million and a healthy profit margin, the increase in business has also seen staffing levels increase to over 50 employees.

"2019 was our best year so far, but 2020 is already on track to be even better, which would be a fitting way to mark CCM’s fiftieth anniversary," Managing Director, Austin Clews, said in a statement. "None of this would be possible without our fantastic customer support."

Amongst the newest members of staff is Product Line Director, Scott Lanzi, who has been drafted in from Bentley Motors to help improve motorcycle delivery times and manage consistent quality on each hand-built machine, as demand continues to rise. As it stands, over 500 machines are currently on order.

"The last three years have been a massive challenge for our increasing number of staff, as we have developed our manufacturing and delivery operations, generated exceptional growth to deal with the great demand for our products," Clews continued.

"Yet in the absence of any major external funding, CCM has managed to arrive at the current point in our growth plan by re-investing profits from its business activities to date so as to ensure that the company can deliver its order book in great financial health, but also to provide the greatest customer aftercare."

Despite only launching their first 600cc single-cylinder Spitfire model at the MCN London Motorcycle Show in early 2017, the English firm has since manufactured and delivered over 1000 bikes to customers across the UK.

Since that initial model launch, the firm has also gone on to introduce a number of variations, including the Bobber and Café Racer. Limited specials have also appeared, such as the 300-run £11,995 Spitfire Foggy Edition - produced in collaboration with four-time World Superbike champion, Carl Fogarty.
