Stellantis names new plant directors

Stellantis has announced new plant directors for its plants in Luton and Ellesmere Port.

Diane Miller will take over at Ellesmere Port while Mark Noble has been named Luton plant director and also UK lead for manufacturing.

Noble has worked for the company for 33 years and was appointed plant director Ellesmere Port in July 2017, while Miller has most recently been responsible for general assembly in Ellesmere Port having joined the team as paint shop manager from Aston Martin in 2014.

Noble said: “It’s been fantastic to have had the opportunity to lead the team at Ellesmere for the past five years. They have done an excellent job continually innovating to drive performance and efficiency, resulting in the allocation of a new battery electric LCV and passenger car models that start production later this year.

“I know the team will continue to have great success as they transition to become Stellantis’s first dedicated electric vehicle manufacturing plant. I am now looking forward to returning to Luton plant after 12 years of working in China, Poland and Ellesmere Port, and starting my expanded role working with the team there to deliver equally exceptional results for the business.”

Miller said: “I am delighted to be appointed plant director at Ellesmere Port at such a crucial time for the plant, where this year we will be transitioning to become the group’s first all-electric manufacturing plant. My goal is to make sure Ellesmere Port is producing vehicles for many years to come securing long term employment for the local area.”
