JLR Pounds 1BN SUPPLY BOOST CREATES 300 WIRRAL JOBS; Ellesmere Port Logistics Centre for Halewood


Byline: NEIL HODGSON

JAGUAR Land Rover (JLR) will open a new parts facility in Wirral creating 300 jobs this summer.

It is part of an extra pounds 1bn spend by the company with suppliers to meet global demand for its Range Rover Evoque.

The logistics centre will be based in Phoenix, in Ellesmere Port, next to Vauxhall's car plant.

It had been used to supply the Vauxhall site by Syncreon Logistics but the 400,000 sq ft warehouse is currently empty.

JLR says its new Wirral facility will open this summer and will be managed by DHL, which already employs more than 600 staff at the firm's Halewood car plant supplying the Evoque and New Freelander 2 production line.

DHL will handle the recruitment of the 300 new jobs for the warehouse.

Last year JLR said the Evoque would be worth pounds 2bn to suppliers, including almost pounds 1bn for Merseyside firms.

Its global success has seen orders soar and the extra pounds 1bn of supplier contracts is needed to keep pace with demand as more than 60,000 have already been sold worldwide in less than a year since the first model rolled off Halewood's lines last July.
