Jaguar Land Rover growth plans accelerate with investment in a new advanced engine facility in the UK
Following a successful Frankfurt International Motor Show and recent discussions between Jaguar Land Rover and UK Government ministers, JLR confirmed a £355 million investment in a new facility to manufacture all-new, advanced technology, low-emission engines in the UK.
The announcement of the investment by JLR, a subsidiary of India’s Tata Motors, was marked by a visit to the company’s Solihull vehicle production plant by Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills.
The new advanced engine facility will be built at i54 South Staffordshire, a business park near Wolverhampton in the UK’s Midlands.
The engine manufacturing facility is expected to create up to 750 highly-skilled engineering and manufacturing posts at JLR, along with thousands more highly-skilled manufacturing jobs in the supply chain and the wider UK economy.
