​The UK made more cars in 2015 than any year since 2005 with a total of 1,595,697 vehicles.  Production increased 3.9% on 2014, with output at 1,587,677 overtaking pre-recession levels for the first time.  A record number of cars (77.3% of total production) was for export, with 1,227,881 units leaving the UK.  Eight brand new car models were produced in UK plants in 2015 with a further £2.5 billion of fresh investment committed to the sector in the same year.

In 2002, our business was established by delivering complex, outsourced recruitment services to a number of high profile automotive O.E.M assembly operations.  This level of collaboration and integration shaped the processes and values that we still practice today and paved our way for our success across the entire automotive manufacturing supply chain.

Our Automotive experience spans all corners of the supply chain including: 

  • OEM Final Assembly 
  • Tier "Zero" Suppliers / In-house Sub-assembly
  • Tier One & Two Suppliers - manufacturing, JIT assembly and Supply In Line Sequence (SILS)
  • Interior and Exterior Systems
  • Chassis & Driveline
  • Precision Engineering
  • Switchgear, Wiring Harness and Electronics
  • Product R&D

Whilst we have long been active across all regions in the UK, our roots are firmly planted in the Northwest, the UK's second most important automotive region.  It employs over 43,000 people with a sector value of £9 billion and over 200,000 cars and 20,000 trucks are produced annually.
