Covpress has expanded rapidly since the British-Chinese consortium takeover in July 2013, and so has the order book from our customers in the automotive industry and our work force. In the 30 months since the £30 million acquisition, a further £25 million has been invested in the Canley plant in both machinery and jobs to meet this increasing demand. It is a real success story. And it goes on. In July 2015 Covpress spent another £30 million buying the nearby Honda supplier UYT, which has been renamed CovpressAssembly.
