A success story created in Britain
Some brands simply capture the imagination. A mention of their name alone and people are excited and inspired by the timeless achievements of the past and present, and the promise of the future. Jaguar is such a brand.
Quintessentially British, it was created by some of the finest design and engineering minds of the time. Today we have a long history of building performance cars with outstanding design and a unique driving feel – instantly recognisable cars that set the pulse racing.
As ever, we’re committed to testing the boundaries of what is possible – no wonder we’re the largest investor in automotive R&D and engineering in the UK.
Investing in people
As the UK’s largest automotive employer, we have a world class team of nearly 24,000 people working in our state-of-the-art design and engineering facilities and manufacturing plants in the Midlands. Together they are helping to create the fine balance required between performance, technology, economy and sustainability that has revitalised our brand.
We’ve created over 8,000 jobs in the last four years, with another 1,000 in the pipeline. In 2012 we employed over 300 graduates and we’ve doubled the intake of apprentices over the last four years. The result? A revitalised brand and a team that is laying the foundations for the future of our business and of the British automotive industry.
Flying the flag around the globe
As well as a loyal and growing audience of UK owners, our cars are sought after all over the world. As part of the Tata Motors family since 2008, we have a truly global outlook. Over 80% of our vehicles manufactured at our Castle Bromwich advanced production facility are exported to 101 markets worldwide, including China, the USA and Europe. This brings in a staggering £8 billion to support the UK balance of trade and export-led recovery.
Innovation in design, engineering and technology is at the core of our business. We will continue to invest in new products, develop new technologies and enhance the skills of our employees.”
