Luxury sports car company TVR is beginning its relocation to a new production facility in Lancashire.
TVR's temporary site is bigger than its current factory
The manufacturer is moving from its current Bispham base to a nine-acre site near Blackpool airport.
But it will operate at an interim production site in Squires Gate while its new modern facility on the Blackpool Business Park is completed.
TVR hopes to be producing cars from its new temporary base from October, with its new factory built in two years.
Staff are cleaning and dismantling equipment at the Bispham site, which the firm has to vacate by next month.
Mike Penny, head of production at TVR, said: "This is the beginning of our journey to the state-of-the-art production facility we are planning at Blackpool Business Park.
"The interim facility will offer a better layout for production and it will be larger than we have currently.
"That will enable us to begin trialling the more efficient and modern production techniques we plan to use in the new facility, while maintaining the levels of quality and performance that our customers expect."
Established in 1947, TVR is Britain's largest independent sports car owner and was bought by Russian tycoon Nikolai Smolensky in 2004.
