JLR looking to double production

JAGUAR Land Rover is looking to double its annual production, despite last week’s shock announcement that it would close either its Solihull or Castle Bromwich factories.

JAGUAR Land Rover is looking to double its annual production, despite last week’s shock announcement that it would close either its Solihull or Castle Bromwich factories.

Last Thursday it was revealed that the Indian-owned car giant would be shutting down one of the plants by the middle of next decade.

But in spite of last week’s bombshell, an internal bulletin, shown to workers, indicates that the firm wants to dramatically increase output.

The same document refers to a “gateway process” which will be used to decide which of the two factories closes, although bosses are keeping tight-lipped about what this will actually involve.
