JLR Announce HQ Expansion

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced a plan to "double the size of its operations" at its Coventry headquarters.

The company said that a completed land deal in Whitley will mean that it can expand its base from 55 acres, to almost 120.

JLR added that the new expanded site would allow them to develop new research and advanced engineerings, and support the development of "ultra-low emission" vehicles.

It is not yet clear how many new jobs could be created in the expansion, the company concluded.
