Queen opens Jaguar Land Rover's £500m hi-tech factory in Wolverhampton...

The Queen yesterday officially opened Jaguar Land Rover’s new £500m hi-tech engine factory in Wolverhampton.

The new plant, which is set to create 1,400 new jobs when fully operational, has been purpose-built to manufacture its new low-emission four-cylinder ‘Ingenium’ engines, starting with the 2.0 litre diesel which will appear first in the new Jaguar XE sport saloon.

The 100,000sq m factory is the equivalent of 14 football pitches.

JLR chief executive Ralf Speth thanked the Queen and said: ‘We are honoured to have your presence to mark one of the most important days in the company’s history.’

 Jaguar Land Rover is the only automotive manufacturer granted all three Royal Warrants as ‘Manufacturers of Motor Vehicles, By Appointment’ from HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said the opening of the factory would see the revenue generated by engine manufacturing in the UK increasing by up to £2.5bn to £10.5bn by 2016.
