Good link, Ben. Another extract from the 1963 article -

"By 1926 the 6-cylinder Essex coach had appeared, selling for a mere 425, and offering smooth-running unrivalled by British cars costing considerably more. Moreover, sales successes enabled the price to be still further reduced and in 1926 it was obvious that an entirely new factory must be built. It was put up in 4 1/2-acres of ground, the first factory to be erected on the Great West Road.

Opened the following year, the chassis were entirely assembled there, even to the frame rivets, but the bodies were imported as complete units from the parent company. A chain-type assembly-line was employed, surely one of the first in an English factory? At the end there was a turntable on which the completed cars were swung round and driven off. This No. 1 shop is still to be seen, beside the Chiswick Flyover, being today the premises of the Nash-Kelvinator refrigerator company."

Is the Nash-Kelvinator building still standing ?
