An automotive company says it plans to build a £50m production site which will create up to 1,000 new jobs.

CAD CAM Automotive (CCA) in Coventry said there would be a £300m investment over five years by itself and Nanjing-based China Red Sun Group, which has taken an undisclosed stake in the firm.

It added it hoped the new site would be in the Coventry area.

The firm supplies car parts to companies including Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin and Lotus.
