In order to streamline their operations, Groupe PSA has decided to re-locate its parts warehouse in Tile Hill, Coventry to Vauxhalls’s Aftersale Warehouse in Luton.
The French automaker notified the workers at this facility that it has started a 45 days consultation with the trade union, Unite, over the future of the site as also work towards ensuring that the job losses arising out of this move is kept at a minimum. This move will affect approximately 100 jobs.
Groupe PSA also claims that according to a study that they carried out, Vauxhall’s parts distribution centre in Luton would fit perfectly with the scale of the Group’s activities in the UK. This move is expected to help the automaker become more competitive in the demanding market.
Apart from this, Groupe PSA is also mulling moving 100 head office functions, currently located at Vauxhall’s Luton Head Office, to the Group’s Head Office in Coventry.
