The Jaguar Land Rover Board of Management paid Castle Bromwich a visit to see how the site is transforming ready for EV's
On Monday the Jaguar Land Rover Board of Management paid Castle Bromwich a visit to see some of the great work happening around site as we progress our facility and people in preparation of our MLA programme and electric future cars.
After being welcomed at the Visitor Centre Prof. Sir Ralf Speth and his team were introduced to the Castle Bromwich management team and taken through a presentation of the work the plant has done over the last three years and the great progress and results we have achieved.
They were then given a tour of C, E and G Block to see the huge changes underway to our BIW operation, firstly with the new Merlin bodyshop and then to progress in these areas to welcome MLA products to the plant.
They then made the short trip over to F Block where they witnessed the works that have transformed a block that only eight months ago was home to XJ X351 and will soon house the marriage process for both electric and internal combustion powertrains.
The tour concluded with a walk through D Block where they were shown some of the modifications that have already taken place to make the block ready to handle the six product lines that will make their way through the block in the next few years.
Throughout their visit, as well as hearing about the infrastructure works, the board were given an overview of how our people are making a real difference to secure a successful future here at the plant and were hugely impressed by the changes embraced in our Merlin Gateway Operating Agreement.
They were equally impressed with the project Charge cost savings made by bringing works projects in-house with our own maintenance teams and some of innovative ideas around product production that we are sharing with our Engineering and Sales colleagues in the shape of our plant inspired ‘Factory Special’ editions.
Speaking about the visit, Plant Director Jamie’s Whitehead commented.
“Monday was a terrific opportunity to showcase the outstanding work happening here at Castle Bromwich and I’m glad to say we grasped that opportunity with both hands.
The whole day was a success and the energy and effort we are making at our plant clearly impressed the board who gave us some extremely positive feedback.
Prof. Sir Ralf Speth in particular praised the drive, commitment and passion he felt throughout the day and as always pushed us to keep doing more.”
Thanks to everyone at the plant who made the visit such a success.
