Jaguar Land Rover Group
JLR Group: Overview Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is a business built around two great British car brands that design, engineer and manufacture in the UK. Jaguar, founded in 1922, is one of the worlds premier manufacturers of luxury sports saloons and sports cars. Land Rover is a world- renowned manufacturer of premium 4x4s based in the UK. JLR is owned by the Indian firm, TATA Group, who bought the firm from the Ford Motor Company in 2008 for a reported $2.5bn. Employing nearly 15,000 people with a large manufacturing base and headquarters in the Midlands, JLR is an employer of choice supporting a large number of supplier organisations across the UK and Europe. At present all Jaguar and Land Rover models are built in the UK (with the exception of the left-hand-drive Land Rover Defender which is produced in Spain). JLR operates a complex and costly export model to distribute products to markets across the world. Because of this TATA announced in May this year it has plans to open a Chinese manufacturing plant for Jaguar Land Rover.
Our philosophy is about creating cars that are as great as they possibly can be. This ethos extends to our people. From the heart of our engineering operations to the glamour of our showrooms, our people are at the heart of our success and its their ideas, beliefs and ambitions that truly drive us.
