It subsequently moved its operations to what is now Lucas Drive on the Cornard Road and finally to this vast factory in Alexandra Road which closed in July 2020. In the process the company changed its name to Lucas CAV and finally Delphi. This image shows the machine shop in the Chilton factory in1967.
