A positive outlook for Vauxhall 0

We have some positive pieces of news to announce regarding Vauxhall’s UK operations. A new Chairman has been announced along with a major £12 million contract being secured with a UK supplier.

Duncan Aldred

The Managing director of Vauxhall Duncan Aldred has been announced as the Chairman of the company. It is understood that he will keep his current role after being promoted.

His job will be to manage Vauxhall’s operations throughout the country. This will include the company’s Human Resources department and employees within Vauxhall’s famous Ellesmere Port and Luton plants.

Amazing achievements

Mr Aldred has certainly come a very long way since his appointment as Managing Director back in 2010 by being chairman. His achievements in his current role have justified exactly why he was chosen for the top role.

The lifetime warranty scheme was introduced thanks to him, with him being playing a major part in developing the scheme. This has proved quite significant as it has proved quite attractive to many prospective buyers. He secured a major sponsorship deal for the Four Nations tournament, which helped to raise the companies profile by quite a bit.

He has also been responsible for the introduction of new models, which always involve risky decisions but have proved to be success for Mr Aldred. The Vauxhall Corsa, Vauxhall Astra and Vauxhall Insignia have been recording excellent annual sales figures making their way to the top 10 list of most cars sold in the UK. The company also has a great employability factor as Vauxhall were voted as one of the best companies to work for.

In what is a turnaround at the top for Vauxhall, the current Chairman will have his job role changed.

Cobra UK

Cobra UK, who are a UK parts based company based in Shropshire, have secured a massive £12 million contract with Vauxhall.

In what is pleasing news to the company, there is more for perspective workers in the area as 50 brand new jobs are said to be created within the company.

They will begin production of an automatic retracting boot cover to be placed in the new Vauxhall Astra.

Cobra UK themselves already have a fantastic reputation. They have supplied car parts Audi, Volvo as well as Bentley.
