ASTRA - NOMICAL LANDMARK FOR VAUXHALL

“The four millionth Vauxhall Astra
has rolled off the production line at
the firm’s Ellesmere Port factory.
Some 236 of the cars were used
to spell out the figure to mark the
achievement. The Cheshire plant
has been making the Astra since
1979,” reports AOL.
“Nearly 2,000 people are currently
employed at the site, which produces
around 680 Astras every day,” says
the report.
Vauxhall director of communications
Denis Chick said: “The Vauxhall Astra
has been one of Britain’s bestselling
and loved cars for almost
four decades, and we’re proud to
manufacture it here in the UK at
Ellesmere Port in Cheshire.
“We felt the production of our four
millionth Astra was worth celebrating
and, as always, the team at Ellesmere
Port has stepped up to the challenge
by creating this stunning image.”
The report adds that the Astra “is
the sixth most popular new car for UK
motorists this year, with more than
34,000 registered between January
and July.” (Link: AOL, 4 September)
