GMM Luton is a British vehicle manufacturer, formerly known as IBC Vehicles. It currently produces light commercial vehicles under the Vauxhall, Renault, Nissan and Opel marques.


GMM Luton has its roots in Bedford Vehicles, the van manufacturing subsidiary of Vauxhall.

In 1986 the Bedford Vehicles van factory in Luton was reorganised as a joint venture with Isuzu. The resulting company was named IBC Vehicles (Isuzu Bedford Company Ltd), and produced a European version of the Isuzu MU Wizard called the Frontera and a range of Renault-designed vans sold under the Vauxhall and Opel brand names. The Bedford name was dropped completely as were all of its preceding range apart from the Midi.

In 1998 GM bought Isuzu out of the IBC partnership[1] and renamed the plant to GMM Luton.


GMM Luton produces the Vauxhall / Opel Vivaro, Renault Trafic and Nissan Primastar.[2]
