Jaguar Land Rover car plant confirmed in West Midlands


Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is to create up to 750 jobs at a new factory on a site near Wolverhampton, the firm says.

The luxury carmaker, owned by Indian firm Tata, is investing £355m to build low-emission engines on a 120-hectare site at a business park near the M54.

Work at the site, which is on the Staffordshire-Wolverhampton border and was confirmed as a new enterprise zone in July, is due to start early next year.

Long-standing JLR worker, Mike Cox, welcomed the news about the new plant.
