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. The first influence on TVR in America is the interest rates. The interest rates at the moment in America are at a major low due to September the 11th.

This is a benefit for TVR because it is good to import when the exchange rates are high in your country. The drawbacks of high exchange rates in England for TVR are that Americans wanting to buy a TVR Tuscan would have to pay around $52,000 for one. Stewart Younger ...read more.
