Land Rover set to increase production

Range Rover Sport fq

It’s hard to know what’s really happening at Tata and Jaguar Land Rover at the moment. Sales for the Jaguar XF continue steadily and the XJ looks promising but the JLR division lost £673.4 million pounds last year, and parent company Tata was also deep in the red at the end of its 2008 fiscal year. With that in mind and a so-far unfulfilled quest for financing, Tata has been busy discussing the need to shed production workers.

Now, strangely a report says that due to “forecasts of strong demand” for the refreshed Land Rover Discover and Range Rover Sport, the Solihull plant will need to increase production. Workers who’ve been on shortened hours since the March will now go back to a five-day work week. That’s good news for the employees and hopefully for Tata.

Workers at Land Rover’s Halewood plant aren’t so lucky with the Freelander factory being shut down intermittently because of low demand.
