Similarly, their van facility in Luton is seeing the addition of a second shift, opening up an additional 250 jobs. These jobs are to be phased in starting next year, marking Vauxhall's "first significant hire programme for a decade".

This marks yet another advance in the British manufacturing industry as well as being great news for Vauxhall. The additional jobs will be supporting output at both plants as the company continues to strengthen and expand its product range.

We here at Hilltop Products are thrilled to hear of yet another story of success for the British Automotive industry, this amidst other recent reports of similar success with companies such as Jaguar Land rover. We are indeed very proud of our association with these successful Uk manufacturing companies, and the confidence and significant contribution to the UK economy they bring as a whole.
