    Vauxhall plants hire more staff

    Vauxhall adds 550 UK jobs at Luton and Ellesmere Port factories

    Demand for Vauxhall Vivaro van and increased output for next year’s new Vauxhall Astra means more jobs needed

    Vauxhall has announced a total of 550 new jobs across its two UK manufacturing plants in Luton, Bedfordshire and Ellesmere Port in Cheshire.

    The jobs in Luton come as the plant moves to two shifts to cope with demand for its outgoing and all-new Vauxhall Vivaro vans. The new workers are expected to be in place by January next year, after this summer’s switch over to producing the new model.

    At Ellesmere Port, the new jobs will be created during the first quarter of 2015 as the company gears up for the arrival of the UK-built new Astra.

    Speaking to Auto Express, GM Europe President Dr Karl-Thomas Neumann said: “The Luton factory is doing a great job building the old and new Vivaro alongside each other, and this comes as we restructure with a dedicated LCV business.

    “We have high expectations for the next-generation Astra at Ellesmere Port. Not long ago we were discussing which GM factory to close, but now we’re hiring again.”

    Dr Neumann also revealed that there could be further jobs coming to the UK with Luton set to become the base of GM’s OnStar communications system, with technical and call centre operatives based at the company’s UK headquarters.

    It's the continuing joint agreement where the Renault Trafic is built by Vauxhall in England, together with the rebadged clones, Vauxhall Vivaro, Opel Vivaro and Nissan Primastar.
