Brompton’s folding bikes, including electric-powered ones, are built by hand in London, and hundreds are now being loaned out for free to NHS workers. Such has been the demand, Brompton has raised more than £300,000 through crowdfunding to help it quickly build up to 1,000 new bikes, adding £100,000 of its own resources to the project. The company is led by chief executive Will Butler-Adams, 45, and profits hit £3.9m last year, when it sold 49,000 bikes.
