Welcome to Made in the Midlands. The Midlands region is one of the most well known manufacturing centres in the UK and indeed is still home to the largest cluster of automotive manufacturers and automotive component suppliers in the UK.
Jaguar and Land Rover are proud to have two manufacturing bases in the Midlands – for Jaguar it’s the Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham and for Land Rover in Solihull. We are also the largest investor in automotive research and development in the UK with product development and engineering facilities at Whitley in Coventry and Gaydon in Warwickshire. Jaguar Land Rover
together employ around 18,000 people in the UK – many of whom work in manufacturing our fantastic products.
As UK Managing Director for Land Rover I am pleased to announce that this March, we had our best ever sales month for Land Rover in the UK. We sold more cars than ever before in our 63 year history. We export around 80% of our UK manufacturing and we also had record sales months in many of our overseas markets including India and China. That tells me that we are making great products right here in the UK and that manufacturing in the midlands has a great future.
