Paragon, a leading UK supplier of end-of-life and PDI services for the car industry, has extended its contract with GM’s Vauxhall division for the refurbishment of more than 30,000 ex-fleet vehicles a year.
The extension of the contract will also see it handling vehicle deliveries out of its Corby site in the UK to Vauxhall dealers of second hand vehicles. It operates a fleet of 110 transporters and 150 single move drivers across the country. The company also said it was investing to expand and upgrade the Corby facility to meet demand.
It is applying its own fleet management system, iSight on the contract, which it said would enable real time access to inventories to ensure the efficient management of vehicles.
Paragon has a 10 year relationship with Vauxhall that has seen a number of innovations developed to create efficiencies in the de-fleet process.
“Paragon continues to prove an efficient partner for our used vehicle supply chain,” said Toni Sozzo, Vauxhall Motors’ National Used Car sales manager. “They share our passion for innovation and continually strive to improve the service they provide.
Paragon handled over 750,000 vehicles last year.
