QUALITY DRIVEN BY PERFECTION

Our facility is over 21,000 square feet and growing with over 30 full time employees building the best award-winning Defenders in the USA. Our founders grew up in England, the Midlands, some 40 miles from the famous Lode Lane factory where these vehicles were produced, surrounded by Defenders from an early age. Mostly driving around on friends’ farms, sometimes riding along with bales of hay, the family dog, or sometimes the occasional farm animal.

We had to create the foundation, build it, and customize it from the ground up – regardless of the risk – if we wanted to produce the quality of build we ourselves dreamed of.

We have a great blend of English owners and American staff, we have different views on how the perfect Land Rover Defender should be, but that truly is what makes our vehicles so special, and we challenge perfection on a daily basis.

OUR PRODUCTS

Our Land Rover Defender builds are full ground up rebuilds. Every nut and bolt is replaced. There is no part of the vehicle that gets left as it was before. Quality is just simply who we are. We build vehicles that have survived decades and give them a new life; we’ve made this historic vehicle a daily driver.
