Jonathan Browning, chairman of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This is further evidence of Coventry and Warwickshire’s flourishing reputation as a hub of automotive excellence.

“The Special Vehicle Operations Technical Centre at Prologis Park is specialist and intensely technical work requiring highly-skilled workers which Jaguar Land Rover attracts and develops to work on their exclusive vehicles.

“Jaguar Land Rover’s continued multi-million pound expansion is a tremendous success story and highlights their faith in the area by locating this specialist, bespoke division here.

“Advanced manufacturing and engineering was the cornerstone of our City Deal bid to government and the opening of this facility underlines the sector is going from strength to strength in Coventry and Warwickshire.”
