From Martin Bell to Sylav chat list and Bec list:

March 2007, and the new owners of the business are: -

BGH Geartech Ltd

Unit 8

Verralls Business Centre

Maidstone Road

Cranbrook

Kent TN17 2AF

Great news for everyone I think.Best of luck to BGH for the future.

Excellent news to hear the Fury is back on the market.

Still remains one of the best kit cars in my opinion - It will be interesting to see what BGH choose to do with it in terms of development.

Just hope they dont fiddle with the formula too much!

bounce Good news! BGH Geartech are justly famous for their excellent gearbox work, so there's every chance they have the technical skills to maintain and develop the engineering integrity of the Fury design. thumbup

Good to know that the project has gone to a company with well established links to the industry and a proven track record in engineering, rather than some wannabe with no previous experience at the base of a steep learning curve!

Didn't Fisher come from around the Cranbrook area originally?

Marden. Yes.

Strangely enough BGH took on one or two of Fisher's staff when the Marden workshop was closed.

Odd, that!

Excellent news (especially as I'm still building mine ).

Best of luck to BGH, but also best wishes to Martin and family for the future.

Steve at BGH was the chief Fury builder at the Marden workshop when I built mine, and to be honest he is as good as anyone bolting a Fury together. Top bloke as well. Its in safe hands I hope, but I am gutted also for Martin Bell as he is a great guy and wish him a speedy recovery.

Great news to see the Fisher Fury will go on and will be further developed. I thought mine might be one of the last ones for a minute. I wish Martin Bell all the best and hope he has a full recovery and can get back involved in the business. Loads of knowledge and enthusiasm.
