For the first time in its history, British motorsport brand Ginetta has expanded its operations into North America, where it will provide prospective customers with sales, distribution, manufacturing and engineering services from a new site in South Boston, Virginia.
Based in Halifax County, the new facility spans 5,574m2 and features multiple divisions, including fabrication, machining, warehousing, engineering, and sales and marketing. The creation of a US headquarters comes as part of Ginetta’s global growth strategy, and with it, the company has also acquired the low-volume US sportscar maker TMI AutoTech.
Lawrence Tomlinson, chairman of Ginetta, commented, “I am delighted to announce this very exciting development for Ginetta. The US is one of the major markets in global motorsport and one where I know from my own racing experiences that the tradition and passion for racing run deep. We have a loyal customer base in the Americas that we have supported up until now from our HQ in England.”
Tomlinson continued, “With the creation of Ginetta North America, we will be able to provide our North American customers with a whole new level of support and service on the ground here in the US. This will also enable us to significantly expand our brand and customer base in the US, Canada and Mexico, which is a key pillar in our global growth plan. I am pleased to report it is already happening, with orders and new US sales agents developing fast, the details of which we will be announcing in the near future.”
