Visiting Kia Motors

Today, I dropped by Kia Motors’ UK headquarters in Walton, to catch up with Paul Philpott (President and CEO of Kia Motors UK), and Steve Kitson (Corporate Communications Director).

It was great to catch up and hear the firms’ news, including its impressive year in commercial terms and Kia’s expanding range of models available across its 188 UK dealers. Kia prides itself on a combination of high quality, reliability, and an attractive and diverse range of designs, which has allowed it to increase and widen its appeal in the UK market.

We talked through some of the domestic challenges, pressures on the car manufacturing sector, issues relating to Brexit, and also the range of support Kia gives to local groups in the community, including the inspirational Childrens Trust in Tadworth. I am proud to have such a strong UK business, and conscientious community partner, in the heart of our constituency.
