Bentley to reopen Crewe factory and resume full production in May

Category : ,

Bentley is planning to reopen its headquarters and factory in Crewe, Cheshire, on 11 May, with around 250 new hygiene and social distancing measures in place. Full production at the plant will resume on 18 May.

The factory’s 4,000 employees will return to work on a phased basis, and will have to keep two metres away from one another, as well as following one-way movement paths around the site. Face masks will be compulsory, and all staff who can work from home will be asked to do so.

In addition to providing personal protective equipment for staff, Bentley will carry out temperature checks and enforce an enhanced cleaning routine in all its facilities. Population density will be controlled in all areas, ensuring too many employees aren’t gathered in any single location at one time.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO, Bentley Motors, said: “Throughout this unprecedented crisis, the health and safety of our colleagues has, and will continue to be, paramount. These extensive new working measures will allow both our people and Bentley to come back stronger than ever and even more focussed.

“The time is now right for Bentley to begin a gradual and controlled return to production, while ensuring our sites are the safest place any of us can be. Everybody will be able to play their part to ensure we can continue Bentley’s extraordinary journey into the future of luxury, sustainable mobility.”
