- for cars see also Morris Motor Company
|Predecessor||EG. Wrigley and Company|
|Headquarters||Birmingham, United Kingdom|
The company was founded in 1924 when Morris bought the assets of EG. Wrigley and Company after it went into receivership late in 1923. Wrigley was a manufacturer of Gears, tools and had also built a car. A small number of commercial vehicle variants of Morris cars were built previously at the Morris plant at Cowley, Oxford, but with the newly acquired plant in Foundry lane, Soho, Birmingham serious commercial vehicle production began.
In 1932 the company moved a few miles across Birmingham to Adderley Park.
In 1936 Morris sold the company to Morris Motors Limited. The use of the Morris Commercial brand name continued until 1968 when British Motor Holdings (BMC), by then the parent of Austin and Morris, merged with the Leyland Motor Corporation to form the British Leyland Motor Corporation.
