HHH Ltd. from London was a coachbuilder and concessionaire for De Dion-Bouton and built mainly bodies on these chassis.

Nick Walker: " Nothing else is known about the firm, and one mystery in particular remains: is the fact, that the firm bears the same initials as H. Hamilton Hoyer (Chalmer & Hoyer, Hoyal) too much of a coincidence?"

I've got the following information from Bill Munro to the name "HHH":

"Nick's view that HHH was too much of a coincidence was exactly that! I've
been researching Hoyal and contacted the UK De Dion Club. They told me that
the coachbuilding company was set up by De Dion and the name comes from the
first initials of the three directors. In fact HHH was set up before Henrik
Therigaard Højer changed his name to Henry Hamilton Hoyer"
