New Hudson (company)
They built motorcycles and pedal cycles from 1903 until the early 1930s, when the company changed to the manufacture of Girling brakes. The Girling interests were sold to Lucas in 1943 and the company went back to cycle making with a range of autocycles or lightweight motor cycles. This continued until 1956 by which time some 24,000 had been made.
In 1943 New Hudson was purchased by Joseph Lucas Limited (including the Girling patent) and combined with Lucas's Bendix Brake interests, which Lucas had acquired in 1931, and Luvax Shock Absorber to form Girling Limited.
