Paragon extends vehicle refurbishment contract with General Motors UK

Paragon has signed a new long-term deal with General Motors UK to refurbish more than 30,000 vehicles a year.

The renewal of the contract will lead to further investment at Paragon’s Corby site as its facilities are expanded and upgraded.

The company has also been appointed to handle logistics for vehicles delivered out of the site to Vauxhall dealers.

Toni Sozzo, national used car sales manager at Vauxhall Motor, said: “Paragon continues to prove an efficient partner for our used vehicle supply chain.

“It shares our passion for innovation and continually strives to improve the service it provides."

Paragon is the UK’s largest supplier of end of life and PDI services for vehicle manufacturers, handling more than 750,000 vehicles last year.

It has a 10-year relationship with Vauxhall that has seen a number of innovations developed to create efficiencies in the defleet process.

The company’s own fleet management system, iSight will be deployed on the contract, and will enable real time access to inventories to ensure the efficient management of vehicles.

Mike Pilkington, managing director at Paragon Automotive said: “Vauxhall is one of our largest customers and we’ve put a focus on quality and innovation at the heart of this partnership.”
