JAGUAR Land Rover’s Halewood plant is celebrating after helping the UK’s largest car producer, claim two
JAGUAR Land Rover’s Halewood plant is celebrating after helping the UK’s largest car producer, claim two Manufacturer of the Year titles in less than a week.
On Friday, June 17, Jaguar Land Rover was named as Britain’s Manufacturer of the Year at the Made in the UK Awards.
The following Thursday night the company — represented by the Halewood plant —took the Manufacturer of the Year title at The Echo Regional Business Awards.
This latest award success sees the Merseyside based plant’s award tally rise to 13 since 2011.
Richard Else, Jaguar Land Rover’s operations director for Halewood, said: “I am delighted that Halewood has been recognised for the role it has played in helping Jaguar Land Rover to become the UK’s largest vehicle manufacturer.
“It’s been an incredible few years for the plant since the introduction of the Range Rover Evoque in 2011.
“Production is at record levels as we continue to build cars on three-shift 24-hour production to meet global demand.”
In February, the 500,000th Evoque rolled off the production line.
The model is now established as the fastest-selling and most successful Land Rover ever produced.
