1,700 New West Midlands Jobs At Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), is to create 1,700 new full or part time West Midlands jobs at its factory in Solihull.

The new Solihull jobs are in addition to the 800 JLR jobs that the car company announced at the start of 2013, meaning that they will have added 2,500 positions at their firm this year. Since 2010, JLR, under the ownership of Indian company Tata, has created over 10,000 new jobs in the automotive industry.

The latest 1,700 jobs at Jaguar Land Rover come as the company ploughs investment into the development of new lightweight, fuel-efficient ‘aluminium architecture’ technology which it will roll out on car designs in the future. A further 24,000 jobs could be created indirectly throughout the supply chain as new models are manufactured and sold.

Speaking at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Ralf Speth, Chief Executive of JLR, gave his thoughts on why the car manufacturer is so successful globally:

“At Jaguar Land Rover we place the customer at the heart of everything we do and the introduction of a world class all-new aluminium vehicle architecture means we will be more competitive, flexible and efficient delivering exciting new products for our customers around the world,” said Dr Speth.

Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the announcement of the Solihull jobs at JLR, saying the £1.5 billion being invested by the company was ‘fantastic news for Solihull and a huge vote of confidence in the UK.’

“Our motoring industry is world class - right out there at the front of the global race - and Jaguar Land Rover is a great example of that British excellence,” added Mr Cameron.
