I started the Devon Rim Company in 1990 and ran it until 2006 when I sold the rim manufacturing machinery and the company name to Shaun Timms.

Shaun is based in Chulmleigh (about 12 miles from South Molton) and still manufactures the best stainless and chrome rims available anywhere in the world. Devon rims are also the only genuinely British made rims on the market. Other companies bring in rims from India or China and, because they do a small amount of work on them in the UK, they can legally stamp them ‘Made in England’

I am a bit too young to retire and I still have lots of rims, spokes and hubs on the shelf, so I’m now trading as a general wheelbuilder. Unlike most wheelbuilders however, I still have the capability to dimple and drill rims and also make my own spokes in-house, which means your wheels are built correctly. Please see the Wheelbuilding page for more details.
