Morris was started by William Morris in 1913 who at the time was a bicycle manufacturer. Morris opened a factory in Oxford and produced their first car called the “Bullnose Oxford”. In the 1930s Morris had become the UK’s largest car manufacturer, with 51% share of the home market.
One of the more famous Morris cars was the Morris Minor which was introduced in 1948. the British Motor Corporation was formed in 1950 from the merger of the Morris company and Austin, which was another rival company.
Later in the 1960s they became part of the British Leyland group of companies. The Cowley assembly plant is now owned by BMW, who now have the rights to assemble the new MINI.
