After months of anticipation the Queen will officially open Wolverhampton’s new £500 million Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre tomorrow.
The 775,000 sq ft factory, the size of eight football pitches, is housed on the i54 development near Wolverhampton and will eventually provide work for 1,600 people.
The building will feature the assembly plant for the new Ingenium engine for the hotly-anticipated Jaguar XE Saloon, as well as a support area for staff featuring offices and toilet and shower facilities. The XE will be the first car to be power by the new engines, which will go straight into the new aluminium-bodied XE as it rolls off the production line at Solihull.
Jaguar has enjoyed recent surging sales figures, accompanied by massive investment in its UK factories and this looks set to continue as the factory starts full-scale production early next year to co-ordinate with manufacture of the new car.
Jaguar Land Rover is a JobsTheWord client and we wish the company and all their staff every success.
Global XE Anthem
The company launched a viral campaign last year encouraging fans to share their moments of exhilaration and inspire Emeli Sande to write a global anthem for Jaguar to celebrate the launch of the new XE. “Sense it, share it, #FEELXE”
