There’s been some good news from Rolls-Royce as the manufacturer has announced that production has returned to pre-lockdown levels at its Goodwood home, and with all staff having been retained.

Rolls-Royce suspended production at the start of the Government’s national lockdown, and when it did resume it operated just a single shift.  While office staff are still working from home where possible, all production staff have now returned to work with the return of two-shift operations.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, explained, “Returning to full two-shift production is a major milestone and comes just four months after we became the first UK automotive company to restart manufacturing after lockdown. That we’ve done so while keeping everyone safe underlines the fact that Rolls Royce is a family, in which we all look out for one another. I’m particularly delighted that we’ve maintained our workforce.”
The return to full production comes a fortnight after the all-new Rolls-Royce Ghost was unveiled to critical acclaim
