Halfords Autocentres head office to relocate

Halfords Autocentres has announced a proposal to relocate its head office function from Olton to the Halfords Group head office site in Redditch.

By working more closely together within the group, Halfords hopes the move will help build on success and grow the Autocentres network to 300 centres and beyond.

The proposed move would see Halfords Autocentres head office staff join their Halfords Retail colleagues in Spring, 2012. It is anticipated that the majority of existing Autocentres head office staff will transfer to Redditch.

Halfords Autocentres will continue to be managed, trade and operate as a separate business within the Halfords Group and there will be no changes to the Autocentre proposition or network.

Halfords Autocentres chief executive Bill Duffy said: “This is an important proposal for our business. Now that the Autocentres have been successfully rebranded and relaunched, the next logical step in our growth strategy is to unite our head office teams under one roof.

“Our proposal will help us work closer together within the Group which will improve processes, communication and efficiencies.

“The experience and quality of the Autocentres head office team has been vital to the progress of our business and we plan for this to continue. Apart from the new office location, with its scope for expansion, in all other respects it would be business as usual.”
