Alcester, UK — UK company Severn-Lamb, the specialist light urban and leisure transport systems manufacturer, has joined the Clifton Cowley Group (CCG), also based in the UK, in a move that will enable the company to further develop and grow as it combines its existing design, engineering and manufacturing skills with the larger organisation’s widespread expertise .
Clifton Cowley is a group of technology, intellectual property, engineering, manufacturing, design, chartered accountancy and marketing specialists who work to develop and grow innovative ventures. The group invests-in and develops their portfolio companies with a focus on servicing technology businesses.
In Severn-Lamb’s case, the new partnership has brought numerous benefits to both the company itself and its global client base. It has enabled an extension of the products and services on offer while also providing Severn-Lamb with the opportunity to collaborate with an engineering consultancy company, as well as taking advantage of in-house marketing capabilities, additional funding resources and all the additional benefits that come with being involved in a diverse group.
“Joining the Clifton Cowley Group has been a significant move for Severn-Lamb,” said Managing Director Patrick Severn Lamb, “and we have quickly seen a variety of benefits in being involved with them, as will our clients. The group incorporates a number of companies, several with unique skills and expertise, and we have been able to make use of these as part of the group.
“As well as bringing our own manufacturing and engineering expertise to the group, we are also helping to open up new potential market areas for CCG as a whole. It’s therefore a great partnership for all parties and I’m looking forward to developing Severn-Lamb further in the future for the company’s benefit and that of our clients.”
As a result of joining the group, CCG has sponsored a re-launch of the Severn-Lamb brand, which has included a review of the products and services on offer, the design of an updated logo for a more modern look and a push for further diversification into other market areas. In addition to the familiar leisure and resort sectors, Severn-Lamb is now also promoting more actively into the light urban and special purpose vehicle sectors, as well as growing it’s engineering and support services division which covers all types of engineering, refurbishment, maintenance, repair and service work.
“We have now moved into a number of new areas and have extended considerably the services we can now offer,” explained Lamb. “We are quite simply making the most of the skills and expertise we have available to us and our many, many years of experience as transport engineering specialists. It’s an exciting position to be in and is already paying great dividends to us as a company and our clients, both in the UK and around the world.”

Based near Stratford-upon-Avon, England, (Shakespeare’s birthplace) the business continues to be family run and has built up an enviable reputation for exceptional quality and innovation in its chosen field.
