Company development overview
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. It is a move that safeguarded 400 jobs. The original acquisition of this hundred year old business was led by Midlands businessmen Peter Smith and Kit Haliday with the Chinese company Shandong Yongtai (the You family).
