Stevens Vauxhall goes into administration

Stevens Vauxhall has gone into administration. The company, which had two premises: Stevens Crawley and Stevens Horsham, ceased trading on 23 August, and Gregory Andrew Palfrey and David John Blenkarn of Smith & Williamson LLP were appointed as joint administrators on 29 August 2012.

The company has been selling and servicing Vauxhall cars at its sites in Horsham and Crawley since 1963 – previously as Tates, then Evans Halshaw. A management buyout in 2000 by Peter Stevens saw the establishment of Stevens as a leading Vauxhall, Chevrolet and Network Q dealer in Horsham and Crawley.

Around 70 people have been made redundant, however, two former employees have now secured positions with CCM at their Rusper and Ewhurst service centres.
