Jaguar Land Rover is one of the success stories of British manufacturing. With headquarters in the UK, it is the country’s largest automotive business, with over 25,000 of our 26,000-plus employees working there.
Jaguar Land Rover operations are currently split across five sites with three vehicle manufacturing plants – two in the West Midlands at Castle Bromwich and Solihull, one near Liverpool in Halewood – and two advanced design and engineering centres at Gaydon and Whitley in the Midlands. The company is looking at expanding its production with an engine production facility in the UK and another manufacturing plant in China to address the emerging Chinese market.
It is across these five sites that Jaguar Land Rover produce the vehicles that sell into 178 countries, thus satisfying the demands of the company’s dealers around the world. These figures make Jaguar Land Rover one of the largest exporters by value in the UK, with more than 80% of the vehicles produced being sold abroad.
Jaguar Land Rover is also continually investing in these sites to make sure the demand and appeal is constant. We are the largest investor in automotive research and development and engineering in the UK, with continued expansion at our sites having resulted in a steady increase in jobs.
Each of the company’s five sites is thriving as demand for new Jaguar Land Rover vehicles continues to rise.
