GOOD NEWS FOR VAUXHALL’S ELLESMERE PORT PLANT AND THE UK.
Stellantis (the group that own Vauxhall and Opel) have announced today a £100 million investment in Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port manufacturing plant. The investment has been made to develop the plant into a new site for electric vehicle manufacturing.
Vauxhall, Opel, Citroen, Peugeot commercial and passenger vehicles will be built there.
The plant will celebrate its 60th anniversary next year. It produced its first car in 1964 which was the Vauxhall Viva. Since then over 5.2 million vehicles have been built at the UK plant.
Performance is always the trigger for sustainability and this £100million investment demonstrates our commitment to the UK and to Ellesmere Port. I particularly want to thank our highly skilled, dedicated workforce for their patience and contribution; we never let them down. Equally, I want to thank our partners the Unite Union for their open mindset and strong cooperation and, of course, the UK Government for their continued support. Producing battery electric vehicles here will support clean, safe and affordable mobility for the citizens. Since 1903 Vauxhall has manufactured vehicles in Britain and we will continue to do so.Said Carlos Tavares, Chief Executive Officer at Stellantis.
Ellesmere Port’s proud tradition in auto manufacturing will continue for many years to come thanks to today’s investment. Stellantis’ decision to double down on their commitment to this site is a clear vote of confidence in the UK as one of the best locations globally for competitive, high-quality automotive production.Said Kwasi Kwarteng, UK Government, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Today’s decision will not only power Ellesmere Port into a clean future, but will secure thousands of jobs across the region in the supply chain. In this global race to secure electric vehicle production, we are proud to support Britain’s auto sector in this crucial transition as we work to build back better.
