That is correct, the engineering and foundry business closed a long time ago though.
It was the biggest business that Raymond Cooke could take his business ideas to when looking for an investor of sorts.

In one of the Scandinavian countries it means sh1t afaik. They apparently don't sell so well there.

This is bizarre! The price is preposterous; the viewer's comment completely non sequitur.
But it IS a Mach 2!   Maybe  "qhawe" is really in need of a pessary?
