David Cameron visits JLR’s new engine manufacturing facility

David Cameron visits JLR’s new engine manufacturing facility

Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) new engine manufacturing centre in the West Midlands was visited by Prime Minister of Great Britain,  David Cameron. He was given a tour of the new plant where he saw the on-going installation of the manufacturing equipment first hand. 

The Prime Minister said, “Whenever I come to one of your plants, it makes my spirits soar when I see such an exciting future for British manufacturing. Everywhere I go in the world I support Jaguar Land Rover. This is a great British success story.”

JLR’s new state-of-the-art Engine Manufacturing Centre is the first new plant that has been built from scratch. The facility sits right in the heart of the UK, and is located between JLR’s other three manufacturing centres at Castle Bromwich, Halewood and Solihull. The new facility will create employment for 1,400 when it reaches full capacity. 

The facility was built with an investment of more than £500 million (Rs 5,177 crore). The plant measures close to 100,000 square metres of internal area. The new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low-emission four cylinder petrol and diesel engines for future Jaguar Land Rover products will be made here. The plant will have three manufacturing halls – one for machining the cylinder heads, cylinder blocks and crankshafts, and the other two will be reserved for assembling diesel and petrol engines. By early 2015 the facility will roll out the first engine.

Mike Wright, JLR’s Executive Director commented, “Our world-class new facility incorporates the latest technologies meeting the highest standards of production and demonstrates our continued commitment to UK manufacturing. We are proud to show Prime Minister David Cameron around our plant as our team begins to commission the equipment which will be used to manufacture our most advanced engines ever.”
