Jaguar Land Rover is excited to announce their all-new Classic Works facility! This new facility is more than 150,000 sq. ft. with 54 workshop bays and a special showroom space, making it the largest facility of its kind in the world.
Located in the British Midlands, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works offers services and products designed especially for passionate enthusiasts and owners of Jaguar and Land Rover classic vehicles. The new facility will house all sales, restoration operations, and servicing of Jaguar Land Rover Classic vehicles all in one place.
“Classic Works is hugely important to Jaguar Land Rover,” John Edwards, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, said. “It’s much more than a building – it’s the heart, and soul, of Jaguar Land Rover Classic for our clients worldwide. Being able to support owners and enthusiasts of our two great brands with a full suite of services for classic vehicles is a fantastic opportunity.”
Also a part of the Classic Works facility, is the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Collection that has more than 500 vehicles. This collection is incredibly important for reference during restorations. These vehicles are available to be loaned out to museums or car clubs for display, and Jaguar Land Rover uses these vehicles to showcase their heritage at different events.
Tradition is important to Jaguar Land Rover, so 80 specialists are on staff at the Classic Works facility to assist with traditional manufacturing. There are 120 specialists expected to be on staff by the end of 2017. In addition to traditional manufacturing, Jaguar Land Rover is able to use their state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to recreate classic parts that would be too expensive to remanufacture otherwise.
“Our people, their knowledge and their skills are the heart of Jaguar Land Rover Classic,” Tim Hannig, Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, said. “There are more than 1.5 million classic Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles worldwide, and we are investing in traditional manufacturing and restoration skills to ensure enthusiasts are able to give cars with a glorious past, a glorious future.”
