Premier Motor Co of Birmingham

1906 Produced four and six cylinder cars made in Belgium and sold under the Premier name. [1]

Premo was a motorcycle produced in 1909, by the Premier Motor Co. This was the name used by the company for the two-stroke Rex model they sold.

They used the Premo name until late in 1909, when an injunction was taken out against them by the Premier Cycle Co of Coventry. They then became PMC. There was never any connection between the two firms.

  • Note: In 1912 the company turned to selling Rex-JAP models with V-twin JAP engines and traded only through their own retail outlet.

1906-1907 Produced an automobile of their own design

1912-1913 Produced the Motorette automobile
