"Putting style on the road"
The story of Haldane Developments and what happened...

Production at East Kilbride
By 1992 the project, complete with Alasdair's new rolling chassis design was creating a high level of interest and, with a healthy demand, it was in need of development finance to grow the company. Brian Harrison produced a comprehensive business plan and substantial investment was attracted from both institutional and private investors. This allowed the company to move to much larger premises in East Kilbride and also set up its own composites production under the management of Trevor Lewis who was skilled in the production of plugs, moulds and high quality finished body shells. Trevor became a major asset to the company and developed the HD-300 moulds from the original 100/4.

Basically both HD-100 and HD-300 cars used the same moulds only the front and bonnet moulds were different and interchangeable. Trevor Lewis later went to become the body expert for TVR.
