About Mitsubishi Motors in the UK

Mitsubishi cars and pick-ups are imported and distributed in the UK by The Colt Car Company Limited, a business established in 1974 specifically for this purpose.

Their head office in Cirencester directly employs around 250 permanent employees. The organisation has a friendly and caring environment that aims to 'Drive Your Ambition' through good development, reward and recognition. They are on a transformation journey that started at the beginning of 2018 and aims to make Mitsubishi in the UK an employer of choice over the coming years.

Colt have created a cross company group to focus on employee engagement. They introduced suggestion boxes around the building and have made recommendations to the directors group about ways to improve working for the organisation. Their ideas have led directly to an increase in the number of town hall sessions, what time they are and who presents at them. They have changed the way feedback from the senior team meetings is shared. They have also driven the concept of skip level lunches with the directors.
