Citroen has confirmed it is relocating its UK head office from Slough to join Peugeot, its PSA sister brand, in Coventry.
The move is likely to begin in September with Citroen’s UK staff currently undergoing a period of consultation.
“A series of redundancies had already been announced at both Citroen and Peugeot as part of a PSA reorganisation. However, as a result of this move we hope there will not be any compulsory redundancies,” said a Citroen spokesman.
The carmaker confirmed the dealership occupying the ground floor of its current base on Slough’s Bath Road would remain and be expanded. The showroom opened in 2008 and is operated by Citroen Retail. Some of the vacated office space will be used for regional training. Citroen’s links with Slough stretch back to 1926 when it opened a factory in the town.
The relocation reflects growing synergies between the two PSA brands who will share back office functions at Peugeot’s Pinley House site.
