Ex Norton CEO Stuart Garner seems to be selling a lot of possessions

Ex Norton boss Stuart Garner and his spouse seem to be selling most of their worldly possessions online

NEWS now from the land of bizarre now, as Stuart Garner’s spouse has been spotted by the parody twitter account ‘Notnorton_moto’ selling what seems to be a lot of their possessions on the Facebook selling pages.

Yes, that’s right, if you want to was off the day’s dirty deeds and get nice and clean for that lavish soiree in your stately home from home, what better way to do it than in Mr Garner’s elegant roll top bath, a snip at just £200…

Aside from the bath there are sofas (by the dozen), wall mounted makeup mirrors, antique lamps, candelabras, an Aga, and even a four-bed, detached house up for grabs.

The Garner’s fire sale comes after the ex-Norton CEO filed for administration at the start of the year. The Norton brand, his boutique hotel on the same estate and some other business were all hanging in the balance.

The one that we care about, Norton Motorcycles, has since been snapped up by Indian firm TVS Motors, a company that is seen as one of the biggest players in the Asian automotive sector. They now plan a period of large-scale investment for the Norton brand, with the first task being to sort the backlog of unbuilt bikes that customers have placed deposits on that remain unbuilt.

speaking of the sale, TVS Managing Director, Sudarshan Venu, who said: “This is a momentous time for us at TVS Motor Company. Norton is an iconic British brand celebrated across the world. Norton with its exciting range of products presents us with an immense opportunity to cater to the aspiration of discerning motorcycle customers around the world. We will extend our full support to Norton to regain its rightful glory.”

From there, they plan a new UK facility, close to Donington Hall, and then further down the line a factory in Asia also.
