Toni Sozzo, Vauxhall Motors’ national used car sales manager , said: ‘Paragon continue to prove an efficient partner for our used-vehicle supply chain. They share our passion for innovation and continually strive to improve the service they provide.’

Mike Pilkington, managing director at Paragon Automotive, said: ‘Vauxhall is one of our largest customers and we’ve put a focus on quality and innovation at the heart of this partnership. The contract will see our team use the latest production methods and technology to ensure the seamless delivery and transport of more than 30,000 vehicles a year, through our operation in Corby.’
