URGENT OPERATIONAL UPDATE FOLLOWING PRIME MINISTER’S STATEMENT

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement imposing strict restrictions to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus, we are closing Cox Automotive UK locations including Bruntingthorpe in order to comply.

We expect the shutdown process to be completed by 5pm on Thursday 26th March after which it will no longer be possible to enter the site. The main entry gate will be closed and only a security presence will remain on site.

We will be working through the details of the closure process today and will communicate further as soon as we are able to. The health and well-being of our team members, and safety of our customers and suppliers remains our top priority.

We appreciate that this is an unsettling time for businesses and families. Together we will get through this but I’m sure you understand that this highly necessary and responsible course of action must be taken quickly.

Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the home of Cox Automotive Vehicle Solutions, Manheim Vehicle Services, Manheim Auction Services and Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground. Situated within a 670-acre site, Cox Automotive customers and vehicle manufacturers, finance companies and dealers can access the extensive proving ground facilities at Bruntingthorpe which range from vehicle testing through to vehicle launches, media events and dealer training.
