Vauxhall’s workers fly the flag

TO celebrate the launch of the all-new seventh generation Vauxhall Astra, workers at the Ellesmere Port manufacturing plant choreographed 128 new models to create the image of the Union flag.

The seventh generation Astra is the eleventh major model line to be built at Ellesmere Port. The plant secured a long-term contract in 2012 and a £140million investment which further demonstrates Vauxhall’s continued commitment to manufacturing the iconic car in Britain.

Orchestrated in less than 24 hours, the patriotic image pays tribute to more than 36 years of manufacturing the Brit-built bestseller at Ellesmere Port, where more than five million cars have rolled off the production line.

Three million have been sold in the UK alone — with 50,000 in the past 12 months and two million exported to 25 European markets.

It is estimated that at full production in 2016, the plant will build approximately 680 Astras per day with further growth in subsequent years.
