Lister Motor Company Limited
The Lister Motor Company Limited (LMCL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Warranty Wise Insurance Services (Warrantywise).
The company was formed in order to bring together all the elements of the Lister brand under one roof. Subsequently LMCL has purchased from George Lister Engineering Limited of Cambridge the original jigs, plans and drawings and all assets and intellectual property rights associated with the design and manufacture of the Lister cars of the 1950s and 1960’s and in particular the Lister ‘Knobbly’ cars.
Similarly, LMCL has also purchased from Laurence Pearce all assets and intellectual property, trademarks, trade names and logos in relation to Lister, Lister Storm and Lister Jaguar.
The Lister Motor Company Limited owns full title, all assets, intellectual property and all commercial rights surrounding the design and manufacture of all past, present and future Lister cars, including Lister Storm and Lister Jaguar and their component parts and comprises the following group of companies:
Lister Cars Limited, Brian Lister (Light Engineering) Limited, Lister Jaguar Limited, Lister Storm Racing Limited, Lister Storm LMP Limited, Lister Heritage Limited.
The following names and logos are ‘Registered Trade Marks’ and protected by law:
- Lister Cars,
- Lister Storm,
- Lister Jaguar,
- Lister Knobbly.
The Lister Motor Company has now firmly contracted all of these assets back with George Lister Engineering Limited of Cambridge, the aim of which is to re-build the Lister brand which was/is a ‘National Institution’ and to once again design and build cars and go racing!
Importantly, Brian Lister himself has been consulted and kept informed of developments throughout these proceedings and has said that he is very pleased.
