Jaguar Land Rover has reaffirmed its commitment to the UK by starting work on a £200 million expansion of its design and engineering centre at Gaydon in Warwickshire.

Already the UK’s largest car maker, Jaguar Land Rover has global ambitions and says the new facility will be one of the world’s foremost automotive product, engineering, and design sites. In recent years the company has also invested heavily in its Castle Bromwich, Halewood, and Solihull factories, and now employs over 40,000 workers.

Chris Elliott, Property Programmes Director for Jaguar Land Rover, said:  “The new design and engineering centre is a testament both to Jaguar Land Rover's British heritage of innovation and its compelling vision for future vehicle technology. The new space will centralise our design, product engineering and purchasing functions in an original and modern environment, as well as creating additional capacity for the future.”
