British Light Steel Pressings

This Company is a comparative newcomer to the motor industry, for it was founded in 1930 and for years made a wide variety of pressings for almost every trade but the motor industry.

Then, in 1937, B.L.S.P. was taken into the Rootes Group and moved into its present premises at Warple Way, Acton. There, it immediately began making body shells for Sunbeams - a name with which it has always been associated.

The Company, which houses some of the largest presses in Britain, produces a wide range of car and commercial vehicle components for the Rootes Group - including suspension units, petrol tanks and many small pressings - as well as body shells.
