Industrial Placement

Who We Are

Peugeot, Citroën and DS are three of the most respected brands in the motor industry and we have the accolades to prove it.  We’ve won everything from the ‘Best Large SUV’ for the Peugeot 5008 SUV at the 2018, What Car? Awards.  To the success of the Peugeot 3008 SUV, which was voted ‘Car of the Year’ in 2017.  This year is an exciting time for us we saw the launch of the DS 7 Crossback and at the end of this year we will see the new stylish Citroen C5 Aircross SUV.

Groupe PSA’s strategy for 2016 to 2021 aims to make the Group a global car manufacturer on the cutting edge of efficiency and a provider of mobility services favoured by its customers. Driven by the ‘Push to Pass’ profitable organic growth plan, this strategy is underpinned by three levers; the digital transformation of the Group, the internal performance culture and corporate social responsibility. As well as setting out the strategic focuses and specific objectives, it represents the first steps towards achieving the Company’s vision, to be the most efficient car maker and the preferred mobility services provider worldwide.
