About Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover is one of the great success stories of the UK automotive industry in recent times. Moreover, it has begun the process of transforming itself from a relatively small, niche, UK-based supplier into potentially a major player in the premium automotive market. The last few years have seen a continuous rise in UK production - with some suggestions that at its two main sites, Solihull and Halewood, it could soon face capacity constraints. In parallel, expansion overseas has started, first with CKD assembly operations in India; full scale production in China is now in preparation and longer term, production in Saudi Arabia (which would be first case of vehicle production in that country) is now being evaluated.

Jaguar Land Rover will spend in the region of UK£6bn in the UK alone in FY2013/14, with the expectation that this amount will grow by a further 50% by 2017. This will create significant new opportunities for suppliers located in the UK as the company looks to simplify its long distance supply chains and reduce the environmental impact of its purchasing operations' footprint.
