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 Limited), and in 1992 produced a European version of the Isuzu Wizard called the Vauxhall Frontera (LWB) and the Isuzu MU also called the Vauxhall Frontera (SWB) 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. The Frontera A was produced from 1992 - 1998 and the Frontera B 1998 - 2004.
In 1998 GM bought Isuzu out of the IBC partnership and renamed the plant to GMM Luton.
Since 2001 GMM Luton produces the Vauxhall/Opel Vivaro, Renault Trafic and Nissan Primastar the Hi-top roof versions were built in Barcelona Spain by Renault at the former Nissan Plant because the Luton IBC building was not high enough to accommodate the Hi-top vehicles. By 2011, the plant had produced 1.25 million vehicles since the 2001 launch, with production now down to 68,000 vehicles a year, with a capacity for 100,000.
Vauxhall announced in 2011 that the 2013 Vivaro would continue production at Luton and the high roof versions and the Renault Trafic would be manufactured at Sandouville, France.
