An economical and environmentally conscious solution to tooling repairs. 






Vauxhall Motors, Luton currently manufacture commercial and passenger vehicles for distribution across Europe.

Vauxhall had identified a selection of defective tools and were looking for a solution to avoid costly replacements and sending the tools to landfill.

Adopting a re-use and recycle policy Abbey’s team of Engineers were able to assess the tools and identify a selection of assets which could be repaired easily and quickly at their UK service centres.

The whole process gave the tools a new lease of life in line with original manufacturer standards.

Restoring tools in this manner delivered a significant cost saving to Vauxhall as well as contributing towards reduced environmental waste targets.
