The administrators of Manganese Bronze Holdings are pleased to announce that all of the 401 vehicles recovered as part of the taxi recall have been fixed and are back on the road. The joint administrators are now commencing the second phase of the fix programme. Over 600 largely new and unregistered vehicles, which have come off the production line in Coventry, will see the same new steering replacement system fitted.
Matthew Hammond, PwC partner and joint administrator,commented:
“I am delighted that all the taxis are now repaired and back on the road. I want to thank the company’s employees who have been part of a massive effort to get all the vehicles repaired. They have worked extremely hard to ensure the affected taxis were returned to their drivers as quickly as possible and back on the road before Christmas. It’s been a tough time for all those affected, so it’s pleasing to have completed this phase of works on schedule.
The 12 production employees laid off from the Coventry plant at the end of October have now returned back into full time employment to assist with the ongoing operations of the business.
