Allard & Co. was a British manufacturing company, established in 1889 in Coventry by Frederick W. Allard and George Pilkington as cycle makers.[1]

In 1898 the company produced a 3-wheel motorised tricycle together with its first car. Car manufacturing started in 1899.

In 1901 the company merged with the Birmingham Motor Manufacturing and Supply Co and was renamed as Rex Motor Manufacturing Co.
