Opened in 1905, by the late 1960s Longbridge employed around 25,000 workers, building cars including the original Mini. In the Second World War, the main plant produced munitions and tank parts, while the nearby East Works of Austin Aero Ltd at Cofton Hackett produced Short Stirling and the Hawker Hurricane aircraft.
Since the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, part of the site has been redeveloped for commercial and residential usage and these signs were removed from the original plant.
