  • Future of Vauxhall Ellesmere Port anounced Today

    Well after months of press speculation, rumours & GM deciding to keep Vauxhall-Opel an offical press statment has just been released to us all at Vauxhall Ellesmere Port.....


    Press statement – future plan for Ellesmere Port
    Following the press conference held on Wednesday afternoon in Ruesselsheim, Germany where Nick Reilly, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Opel/Vauxhall gave a brief summary of the discussions that had been held with the European Employee Forum (EEF) in respect of the Opel/Vauxhall viability business plan, the consultation process with each individual manufacturing plant in Europe has now begun. This process will continue over the next month to finalise details of the forward plan for Opel/Vauxhall across Europe.
    As a first step in this consultation process, Ellesmere Port is today advising employees of the proposals for its future. The proposed plan is for Ellesmere Port to move to a three shift production operation in 2011. To support the launch in 2010 of the new Astra Sports Tourer and to prepare for the 3rd shift introduction in 2011, the plan is for no redundancies as all current labour would need to be utilised to staff the 3rd shift.
    Plant and Trade Union Senior Leadership will now work together to develop the details of the plan in order to support the future strategy for Ellesmere Port.

    Good news for us all now this gets shut of the dark cloud once & for all

                Nothing set in stone for Luton at the moment but GM still have plans to continue building Vans there with a Replacement for the Movano & Vivaro or updated versions.
                Fingers crossed that Vauxhall will be building cars ect at both sites for quite a few years yet
