Land Rover ups production to cope with demand

Date: 28 August 2012   |   Author: Tristan Young

Land Rover is aiming to cut order times for the Evoque by adding a night shift to production of the baby Range Rover.

The extra shift means the Halewood, Merseyside, plant where the car is built will run 24 hours a day for the first time in its 50-year history.

Halewood operations director, Richard Else, said: "Our new recruits have worked hard during their assessments and extensive induction training. Many have also worked a number of trial night shifts during July, to ensure we get off to a great start.

"I am delighted to welcome our new colleagues as they come on-board to help us meet customer demand for the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander.

"Moving production to three shifts and working 24 hours a day will allow us to significantly reduce the time a customer has to wait for their new Range Rover Evoque."
