Project 

Supplying Vauxhall’s new turnkey solution with reliable, versatile products to fit a variety of vehicles and requirements. Vauxhall have responded to the needs of the UK Police Forces, who require a one-stop-shop for blue light vehicles and ensuring vehicles are of the highest standard.

Currently, 99% of content for converting standard police vehicles is British, and Vauxhall are keen to uphold this with Woodway Engineering.

 

Requirements

Vauxhall moved all Police car production facilities to a new purpose built site in Luton, making them Europe’s largest Police vehicle supplier.

As part of Vauxhall’s turnkey solution, they’re ensuring equipment and services remain built in Britain.

The Justice™ lightbar was selected by Vauxhall, for it’s reliability, performance and ability to fit a wide range of vehicles from GP vehicles like the Astra and Corsa, to larger Movano and Vivaro commercial vans. Woodway Engineering also supplied Vauxhal with Vertex™, ION™ T-Series™ and LINZ6™ lightheads, as well as siren systems. The performance of the products need to be reliable, and applicable to the different vehicles and uses.

  • Blue light equipment to be provided by UK suppliers.
