Spyker, maker of exclusive sports premium cars is forced by the recession to relocate its car assembly to UK, Coventry, near CPP Manufacturing Ltd. Engineering (its supplier). Sales, After-Sales, Marketing, Corporate staff functions plus 'Spyker Squadron', the firm’s Works' GT racing team, remains in Netherlands - Zeewolde. From the 135 employees, 45 jobs approximately will be lost; the management considers this, a complete social plan.
CEO of Spyker Cars - Victor R. Muller said 'In these challenging times, a small manufacturer like Spyker has to find ways to reduce costs as well as improve its efficiency. By relocating vehicle assembly to CPP (Manufacturing), which was Spyker's very first contracting partner at the inception of our company in 2000 and has been one of our most trusted partners ever since, we secure the future of our business'.
'With approximately half of our vehicles’ parts and components sourced in the UK, and virtually all key suppliers being located there, moving closer to our suppliers and engineering partners will result in substantial savings and tangible efficiency improvements'.
He continued 'We realise that jobs will be affected in the Netherlands but we believe this move is necessary under the current economic circumstances and is in the best interest of the company and all of its stakeholders'.
The Managing Director of CPP (Manufacturing) - Brendan O'Toole said: 'We have worked closely with Spyker since 2000 when we built their very first prototype chassis, and have grown with Spyker to become one of the leading low-volume manufacturers in the industry. We will maintain the highest standards of quality in the assembly of Spyker vehicles, while at the same time achieving significant cost reductions and operational efficiencies for Spyker'.
