The Research Association of British Motor and Allied Manufacturers

Formed around 1918.

1920 Changed its address from 39, St. James's-street to 40-41, Conduit-street, London, W. 1.[1]

1926 The Association was supported by nine firms making motor vehicles and nine supplying fittings, steel and other material.

By 1927 Three companies that had been members of the Association had been in the hands of liquidators; amalgamations and working agreements had been effected between others; as a result there was insufficient income to fulfil the agreement with the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, so this agreement was to be ended at the end of the year.[2]

1931 Absorbed by the Institution of Automobile Engineers [3]
