Stadco to manufacture MG Rover spare parts

Stadco : 27 June, 2005  (New Product)
Following the collapse of the MG Rover Group, Stadco is working closely with XPart to secure the supply and manufacturing routes required to continue producing body components for all MG and Rover models. These spare parts are essential to keep accident-damaged vehicles on the road.
Following the collapse of the MG Rover Group, Stadco is working closely with XPart to secure the supply and manufacturing routes required to continue producing body components for all MG and Rover models. These spare parts are essential to keep accident-damaged vehicles on the road.

Stadco is one of Europe's leading suppliers of body-in-white panels and pressings to vehicle manufacturers including Ford, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, and previously the MG Rover Group. As such, XPart, a division of Caterpillar Services (UK) Ltd, which acquired the MG Rover Parts Business in August 2004 has recognised that Stadco is an ideal partner to help secure and establish the necessary production equipment and processes needed to manufacture MG Rover body spare parts.

Commenting on the company's commitment to making body parts available to the aftermarket and help customers of MG Rover keep their vehicles on the road, Andrew Morriss, Stadco Managing Director said: 'We are working hard with XPart to establish a sustainable spare part supply chain and hope that this announcement will ease the minds of both existing MG Rover drivers and the insurance industry that a supply of critical body parts will be available for the foreseeable future.'

John Parkinson, Chairman of XPart, added, 'Fortifying relationships with key XPart suppliers, such as Stadco, will ensure that a full line of genuine parts for MG and Rover vehicles will remain available well into the future.'

Following the recent announcement that it is to potentially close its Holbrooks Lane, Coventry, plant by mid 2006, which undertook much of the work for the MG Rover Group, Stadco will manufacture the spare parts at its other major sites in the UK. Stadco has 6 remaining manufacturing sites, 5 in the UK and one in Germany.
