The best that I can offer is that they were built at that factory. Daimler’s built the prototype vehicles according to Wikipedia, but production was awarded to Leeds. Presumably Alvis was busy with CVR(T) at the time and Vickers with main battle tanks. GKN was possibly not interested as it had the FV 430 series and various development projects on the anvil.

We've listed them as Alvis before, is that not correct?

Looks like that may have been my error! The ROFs were under state ownership until 1987, so may have been given some help to keep the work in-house. Alvis at the time was a commercial entity. I recall seeing Fox vehicles under overhaul at COD Donnington, again a case of keeping it in the family, I suppose
