Solus Vauxhall group, Thurlow Nunn, has had its franchises reconfirmed following the manufacturer’s notice of termination across its network.

Group managing director, Simon Bottomley, said: “It has been necessary to terminate all contracts for both legal and operational reasons such that a new network structure can be shaped. I can confirm the excellent news that the Thurlow Nunn Group will remain unaffected by this re-structure. Our contracts have been renewed across the board.That means it will be business as usual for all our branches. Thurlow Nunn will remain a substantial partner within the wider Vauxhall PSA Group for many years to come.”

Meanwhile, the Now Vauxhall Marlborough dealership, formerly Skurrays, has closed, with the loss of eight jobs.

Industry analysts predict that a third of Vauxhall’s current outlets will go in the shakeup putting around 3,800 jobs at risk.
