Vauxhall wins huge police deals
03 November 2011
Vauxhall Special Vehicles has become the biggest supplier of low- and mid-performance vehicles in the UK after winning contracts for six police regions in a tender process initiated by the National Policing Improvement Agency.
The win means that 30 of the UK's 52 police authorities are now contracted to buy Vauxhall vehicles and will see the delivery of around 7000 cars and vans over the next four years - including Corsa, Astra, Insignia, Astravan, Combo, Vivaro and Movano models.
Vauxhall Special Vehicles manager Dick Ellam said: "A key factor in our success is our approach to the supply chain. The only element we outsource is the delivery of the vehicle to the customer - everything else is done in-house. We are therefore able to make savings for the police fleets in the time it takes to bring their vehicles into service."
