Vauxhall's Luton plant celebrate their millionth Vauxhall Vivaro
- Created: 10 December 2015
Vauxhall's Luton based manufacturing facility celebrates it's millionth Vauxhall Vivaro.
Vauxhall is the UK’s number one commercial vehicle maker, a position it has held for 13 years since Vivaro production started.
Chairman and managing director Rory Harvey said, “We are very proud to celebrate this milestone at our Luton manufacturing plant. Our hardworking and dedicated workforce at Luton produce vehicles of exceptional quality so it is no surprise these UK-built Vivaro vans are so successful in the marketplace.”
The 1,000,000th Vivaro was sold to BT Fleet. Mike Langford, senior customer relationship manager for BT Fleet said, "We have purchased 13,368 Vivaros from Vauxhall over the past 11 years and they have served us well. The van has evolved over time to meet the changing needs of our workforce, and I believe the vans we are taking delivery of at the moment are their best yet."
Vauxhall's new Vivaro launched in 2014, helping to secure 1,500 jobs at the UK's last van manufacturing centre after the workers won a 10-year contract and an investment of £185 million.
