Unipart Group brings together manufacturing, logistics and consultancy in a set of products and services that create imaginative solutions for our customers.
Our roots are in manufacturing within the automotive sector – but our history has required us to reinvent ourselves, several times, in order to maintain a competitive advantage.
Being able to offer our customers the learning from our own journey of reinvention has never been more relevant than in today’s fast changing world, where new technology and new competitors are swiftly eroding traditional competitive advantage.

On our journey, we’ve been inspired and our values reinforced by fellow members of Business in the Community, and we hope that, through Business in the Community and the RSA Tomorrow’s Company initiative, we have been able to inspire others.
