Heuliez is a French company that works as a production and design unit for various automakers.
It specializes in producing short series for niche markets, such as convertibles or station-wagons.
Heuliez was created in 1920 by Adolphe Heuliez who started by making horse-drawn carts.
As early as 1925, he assembled his first car, a Peugeot 177B.
He also created a subsidiary company for the production of buses which was later sold.
Today, the main product of Heuliez is the retractable roof made for the Peugeot 206 CC of which 350,000 units have been produced.
It also produces entire cars, such as the Opel Tigra.
Since 1985, Heuliez has produced more that 450,000 cars, with a staff of over 2,000.
Recently, however, poor sales of the Tigra have forced Heuliez to reduce its staff by 541 and Opel has asked Heuliez to reduce its output from 200 to 50 cars/day until the end of 2006.
In October 2007 Heuliez asked for protection from creditors.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
