Jaguar Land Rover is investing more than £500 million in the facility, which currently comprises two main production halls: a machine hall and a diesel engine assembly hall. Other areas include offices, amenity facilities, product measurement and testing areas, logistics, car parking and landscaping.
The site will be the home for a new generation of technologically advanced, lightweight, 4-cylinder low emission diesel and petrol engines, and is expected to employ almost 1,400 people.
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has completed and handed over the construction element of Jaguar Land Rover’s new Engine Manufacturing Centre near Wolverhampton. This is a major project milestone at the Centre, with the first engines due to come off the production line in early 2015.
