Jaguar Land Rover has reaffirmed its commitment to car development and production in the West Midlands with investment totalling £600 million announced today.
The announcement completes a remarkable transformation for the company's West Midlands facilities, which were earmarked for consolidation as recently as 2010. The introduction of successful new models, as well as significant investment, have seen sales of Jaguar cars built at its Castle Bromwich plant almost double in five years.
Company CEO Dr Ralf Speth said: “Jaguar Land Rover continues to demonstrate its unwavering support to the British automotive industry through sustained investments in advanced research, technology and innovation.
“This investment, made here in the heartland of our UK business operations, signals the confidence we have in this region to support the creation, engineering and manufacturing of ultra-low-emission, premium British products, today and in the future.”
