Motorcycle academy's 'vital' backing from Santander

The new British Motorcycle Manufacturing Academy is being built at the Castle Donington headquarters of Norton. Its aim will be to train the bike engineers of the future. The project received a major boost when Norton secured £2.65m from Santander Corporate and Commercial. Stuart Garner, Norton's owner and chief executive, said: 'Santander has played a vital part in the ongoing success of Norton over the past five years. This latest funding was fundamental to the wider support we have received and will help us deliver some exciting new products and tangibly expand our production.' Nick Pulley, regional director at Santander Corporate and Commercial, said: 'We're delighted to be able to support Norton as the firm enters a new, bolder phase of growth and global expansion. The firm is a true UK manufacturing success story and a business the East Midlands can be rightly very proud of.
