ALL CHANGE AT BRITISH MOTOR HERITAGE

Much has changed at British Motor Heritage (BMH) since Graham Payne assumed the role of managing director in summer 2020. The manufacture of the company’s core products has been meticulously reorganised, and a number of new product lines introduced.

Moreover, there has been a radical change to the company’s secondary branding. Motoring Classics, BMH’s original online marketplace for accessories, car care items etc, has been axed and in its place, the iconic Tex name has been brought to the fore. This significant makeover is reflected in two brand new websites – www.bmh-ltd and www.texautomotive.com.
