Jaguar Land Rover to double Wolverhampton Engine Plant and create new jobs

Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans to double the size of its Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton as part of a 450 million-pound expansion programme.

The total investment in the site which now stands at 1 billion pounds, represents the global demand for Jaguar Land Rover’s engines, most notably the Ingenium TD4 diesel engine. The Ingenium engine launched initially in the Jaguar XE in April 2015 and was quickly followed by the new Discovery Sport, two of the most significant product launches from the British manufacturer accounting for sales of 65,800 in the year so far.

Mark Wright, executive director of Jaguar Land Rover, told the BBC the plant was “absolutely pivotal” to the company’s plans for global expansion.

“As we grow our volumes around the world we need more capacity,” he said. “We’ve started the initial phase just 12 months ago, that’s gone really well, and we’re now planning for the next phase for the next two or three years.”

The announcement will also lead to the creation of several new jobs at the Centre, in a move which will see Jaguar Land Rover’s global workforce hit 40,000 by next year.
