Does anybody have accurate information about the period Tornados were made in China? They are supposed to be back in UK now, but is the time period 2006-2011 correct? Are Tornados now made in UK&China or just China?

I believe that Tornado is now called XS ????

Edit, I don't think what I was told is true, I just googled XS and it says BMC.

As far I know XS- ribs where founded by employees from TORNADO who started their own brand after Tornado moved to China

Whilst I do not know the detailed history, I don't think that is quite correct; whilst Tornado were being manufactured in Hull, prior to the move to China, XS were already being manufactured.
