Business Scenario - TVR

Extracts from this document...


Business Scenario - TVR The engineering company TVR Ltd produces high quality performance cars in the UK. They employ a total of around 1400 people at four separate plants in the Midlands. But lately the economy in countries across Europe has hit a downturn and the economic growth is slowing. This is a worry for TVR, especially as the economy in America is also in recession.
