It was situated between the A45 and the A423 in Warwickshire. The south-east of the factory site bordered with Ryton-on-Dunsmore village.The factory was originally constructed by the Rootes Group in 1940 to build aircraft engines during the Second World War. After the war it became the headquarters of the Rootes Group, but when the organisation entered financial difficulties in the 1960s, the company and thus the plant was taken over by the American car-making giant Chrysler. Chrysler itself entered financial difficulties and sold the plant for a symbolic US$1.00 to PSA Peugeot Citro├źn in 1978, and from this stage all cars produced at the plant were badged as Talbots - reviving an old brand name to replace the Chrysler brand in Britain and the Simca name on the continent.
