Oxford Products is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023 and has a full calendar of celebrations to mark this special year.
Imagine all the stuff we bikers have thanks to the motorcycle and push-bike firm, which is (unsurprisingly) based in Oxford… They’ve not only backed racing for almost the entirety of their existence but they’ve made and manufactured a wide-range of bike kit that has helped us over the decades – such as heated grips and cheap, throw-over luggage. In recent years they’ve also added some premium brands to their portfolio so they have everything covered.
The company kicked off their 50th year in style with a black-tie gala evening at the Doubletree Hilton in Swindon on Saturday 7th January. All 160 staff and their partners were invited to a lavish all-inclusive do with accommodation, food, drinks and entertainment laid on.
Pre-dinner speeches by founder and chairman Alec Hammond and Managing Director Andrew Hammond outlined the extraordinary rise of ‘Oxford’ from very humble beginnings before saluting the many talented and dedicated people in the room who have made it happen.
Oxford is also big on rider training – allowing their car park to be used by the local training establishment Oxfordshire Motorcycle Training. For more, see: www.oxfordshiremotorcycletraining.com
