GM Global Manufacturing heads have paid a visit to Vauxhall's plants in Bedfordshire and Cheshire, viewing, listening and learning about state-of-the-art automotive manufacturing in the UK.
Teams at both Vauxhall plants showed off their achievements in efficiency, quality and safety as well as introducing them to the culture of continuous improvement underpinned by readily available training sessions and relationships between all stakeholders.
Accompanied by Eric Stephens, Vice President Global Manufacturing Engineering, and Tom Croskey, Executive Director Global Manufacturing Strategy & Planning, Diana Tremblay, General Motor's Global Chief Manufacturing Officer, commented "I was very impressed with the knowledge, hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of the entire work force - especially after the past two years of economic difficulty. It is energising for me to see our new products, as well as the strong focus on continuous process improvement. Thanks to the entire manufacturing organisation for helping GM be a great company again."
Currently, production at both plants is running at record line speeds in order to meet demand and growing export levels, having taken on 268 employees.
