The Triumph Motor Company had it's origins in 1885 when Seigfrield Brittman and Mauritz Schulte started producing Triumph bicycles at Coventry, England.
In 1921 Brittman acquired the assets of the Dawson Car Company and started producing a 1.9 litre model called the Triumph Light Car. A number of other models were made up until the 1929 depression when production almost stopped entirely.
In July 1939 the Triumph Motor Company factory, equipment and goodwill were offered for sale. T.W.Ward purchased the company and placed Healey in charge as General Manager, but war in Europe again stopped the production of cars.
After the war, what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph brand name was bought by Standard Motor Company.
