Those are some great numbers, good to see that they hired 4000 people, helps the local economy.
Some of the numbers may be reaching however...“There will be 1,700 new jobs all across the factory. On top of those 1,700, DHL are recruiting. They are completely integrated with our operation, DHL are hiring 700, supporting our 1,700” explained Alan. “It will be 2,000 jobs upwards in the supply chain. We have a brand new body shop, a brand new final assembly. We never had any reason not to build Jaguars and Land Rovers across our different plants.”
What sort of things are car makers outsourcing that Jaguar should be doing?It seems like Jaguar tries to provide jobs at home instead of outsourcing their production to a whole bunch of places. Maybe that is just true of the XE, but either way, I'm glad to hear about some people getting some good jobs.
An inside look at the factory would be cool. I like seeing how the cars are made. It's always so state of the art.
