Wholly-owned subsidiary of Tube Investments which brought together Tube Investment's cycle manufacturing in Birmingham.

Formation of TI Raleigh Industries.

  • 1981 TI Raleigh faced a Monopolies Commission enquiry because of their refusal to supply discount retailers[4]. In July Ian Phillipps, chief executive of TI Raleigh Industries resigned[5]. Large overstocking by dealers led to drastic cut in manufacturing. Raleigh still had 2000 models in their catalogue[6]. Commission found against Raleigh but allowed it to continue to restrict supplies of Raleigh models but some other brands would be available to discounters[7].
