While attending the auction of the site of the former Triumph factory to buy the site for house construction, Bloor bought the collapsed Triumph brand in 1983. After sub-licensing the brand for a period, he invested over £80 million into rebuilding the marque, opening the new Hinckley factory in 1991. After a factory fire in 2002 stopped production the factory was rebuilt, and now produces 46,000 motorcycles per annum.
Bloor's first job was as a trainee plasterer for a local building contractor. Two years later he set up his own Business and began building his first house before he was 20. His building company, Bloor Homes, is now one of the largest privately owned house builders in the UK, and has contributed to the successful regeneration of the East Midlands. In 2002, housing sales reached 1,870 making Bloor Homes then the largest housebuilder to be owned by one man.
