Over many years the automotive industry has led the field in the UK’s manufacturing sector. That said, in the context of the global economic slowdown and pressure from manufacturers overseas, growth in recent years has not been without its challenges.

Encompassing commercial, coach, bus and motor retail brands, the automotive sector is the UK’s greatest contributor to exports, responsible for over 80,000 jobs, producing 1.5 million vehicles and 2.5 million engines annually. 

European businesses will need to continue to cut costs and drive efficiencies to stay ahead of the competition, placing equal emphasis on recruiting and retaining skilled labour and investing heavily in new technologies.

Geldards has over 25 years' experience of advising a diverse range of businesses from large multi-national manufacturers through to businesses operating in the supply chain, including motor and component manufacturers and distributors; supply chain manufacturers and logistics advisors.

We provide support and advice in the following areas:
