Unipart Group
The Unipart Group is one of the largest private sector companies in our field,
employing 10,000 staff around the globe, with an annual turnover in excess of $1.5 billion.

A different kind of company
When many people think of Unipart they recall a company that revolutionized the automotive aftermarket in the 1970s. A lot has changed since then; Unipart is now a highly diversified company bringing a wide range of benefits to clients in the rail, technology, on-line fashion, retail, public and automotive sectors.

Each of our client relationships is unique, but what is common to most is how Unipart enables significant cost reductions, improvements in capacity and customer service and a level of engagement with employees that delivers real commercial benefits.

Our operations now span three major areas: logistics, manufacturing and consultancy. But across all three, there is a single approach that enables us to deliver more than our clients expect. We call that The Unipart Way

Creating a new vision
Today, The Unipart Group is one of the largest private companies in our sector, employing over 10,000 staff around the world, with an annual turnover in excess of £1.5 billion. We are Britain’s second largest, employee owned company, with the majority of shares being held by employees.

But when the group formed nearly three decades ago, it was ideas rather than size that shaped our fortunes.

Unipart was originally a division of the car manufacturer British Leyland - until a management buy-out gave us independence over twenty years ago. This was the start of our journey of transformation

When we became independent from British Leyland, which, like much of British industry in the 1980s, was known for its poor productivity and terrible industrial relations, it was clear that we needed to find a new way of working - and a new approach to employees

It was the start of the Unipart Way.

The Unipart Way
This new way was informed by the best practice from Japan and around the world. While it included adopting the principles of lean thinking, it was also a move from ‘command and control’ to the beginning of ‘employee engagement’. We called this new approach The Unipart Way.

The Unipart Way has been at the center of our growth and today it is our standard way of working across all the companies in the Unipart Group. It is our proven method of generating our high levels of employee engagement, which deliver a wide range of benefits for all our customers.

Unipart people consistently strive to deliver better than expected results through their high levels of engagement, underpinned by our operational excellence.

It's what we call Performance Through Engagement.
