ABOUT  PLUS POINT

We are the UK’s automotive industry experts, specialising in the management and recruitment of talented industry professionals within the automotive sector. Plus Point provides a fully managed professional service solution to manufacturing quality issues for tier one and major UK based OEMs.

Founded in 2008, Plus Point have been offering an unrivalled service to the UK’s automotive industry for almost ten years. From our offices based in the Wirral, we offer a national service covering in all areas of automotive staffing.

Working closely with manufacturers and component suppliers throughout the manufacturing supply chain, Plus Point helps companies achieve the highest levels of manufacturing quality through proactive intervention which ultimately reduces waste and unnecessary cost.

Our SERVICES

Plus Point is an automotive quality control specialist that works with OEM automotive manufacturers and tier 1 – 3 global supply chain partners, taking full responsibility for materials on the car.

We offer a range of services from lean performance improvement, to on or off site parts quality control services, or providing on-demand temporary, contractor and permanent staffing services.

Our PROCESS

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to what we do, as every client and scenario is different. But what we do know is that we pro-actively investigate problems, carry out root cause analysis, make informed decisions, and focus on finding the fix for the problem at hand. We take responsibility and control of the materials and have strict processes in place that guarantee quality and financial targets are met.

Our TRAINING

The Plus Point Improvement Programme (PIP) is our approach to providing continuing professional development and bespoke automotive training as a CPD accredited training provider. Engaging the Plus Point Improvement Programme ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT PLUS POINT

It is truly excellent to see Plus Point continue their expansion with the appointment of Andrew Emmerson as Business Development Director. The company has demonstrated year on year growth since its formation in 2008 and now provides a nation-wide service. Our Chamber membership is a genuine hub of enterprise and innovation, together with a bouyant SME sector and Plus Point is an exceptional example of this.

Eve, again thank you so much for your hard work and professionalism which enabled me to get the opportunity at Aston Martin.  There was a certain personal touch which I observed with Plus Point that sets them apart from the other recruitment consultants in the market.  Overall, a quality service provided throughout the whole process.  I have no hesitation at all in recommending Plus Point to anyone looking for new opportunities.

Engineer - regional candidate for Aston Martin

Plus Point knows their market well and always works hard to offer advice and support. Tanya has placed several candidates with us and the quality of service has always been consistently good, from the initial CV submission right through until offer stage. I have no problem recommending the services of Plus Point to other accident repair businesses who are seeking additional staff.

Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds all other recruitment agencies I have dealt with. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to you and I am made to feel unique.

National Service Manager - Aftermarket

A call I didn’t expect or thought I didn’t want was my first experience of Plus Point. Who would have thought that one call would have changed my life so much?  I was asked if I was interested in a new challenge, a new role as an HR director in an automotive aftermarket company. Tanya and Plus Point were very professional, informative and made all communications quick and easy, I felt at ease and well-prepared for each interview due to information given.  I would like to thank personally Tanya for her help in making this experience great.

Paul Knight, HR Director - Automotive aftermarket.

My company has retained Plus Point’s quality engineering support for the management of corrective & preventative actions as they have effectively managed our non-value adding containment activities. This has helped our Quality Function to be robust at resolving concerns, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing internal quality costs. I highly recommend Plus Point to any organisation that requires an injection of quality improvement whilst improving the bottom line.

I am delighted to be joining a team who have successfully established a highly respected business and brand in the provision of out-and-out automotive staffing. I look forward to building on this market position and utilising my own sector expertise to grow the company further.

Andrew Emmerson, Business Development Director - www.wirralchamber.co.uk

We’ve had a team of inspectors, engineers and auditors from Plus Point for several months to assist us in speeding-up recovery of problems associated with a difficult plant consolidation activity. Throughout, they have acted professionally, integrated well with our own staff (whilst remaining independent) and have brought a wealth of experience and understanding of automotive processes.

I’m pleased to see that there is also good knowledge transfer, with their time here assisting in improving our level of knowledge in areas such as 8D, FMEA’s etc., not just solving our problems in an isolated manner.

Over the years, we have experimented with other 3rd party quality control origination, but Plus Point has proven to be the supplier who offered the most consistent and reliable service at a competitive price.  Plus Point’s professionalism and robust service gives me every faith in them to fill any customer’s needs.

Quality Manager - Tier 1, automotive - North West

Thank you for your exemplary efforts throughout the recruitment process.  Your candidates were consistently amongst the best prepared and strongest candidates we interviewed.  It is always difficult to find a candidate that ticks all the boxes, which is why your patience and persistent follow-up was much appreciated.  It is for these reasons that I am particularly glad that it was through Plus Point that we identified and hired our new employee.
