The A.J.Stevens Company was founded in 1909 by the four Stevens brothers, with motorcycle production commencing the following year. In the Twenties, AJS made a name for itself with a new OHV single-cylinder engine that helped the Wolverhampton outfit score wins in the 1921 and 1922 Junior TTs. Despite expanding into light cars and other products, AJS were struggling by the late Twenties and the manufacturing rights for their motorcycle production passed to Matchless in 1931 before becoming part of the Associated Motor Cycles group in 1938. In 1935 a large variety of models are available. The model range reached from 250cc single to 1000cc V-twin.
