Rolls-Royce Motor Cars confirmed today that construction of the company’s new Technology and Logistics Centre at Bognor Regis, is on track for a successful launch in early 2016.
The Technology and Logistics Centre is located on the Oldlands Farm Business Park on the northern edge of Bognor Regis. The new 30,000m2 facility is said to provide logistics support to the company’s manufacturing plant and head office at Goodwood for current and future models, and consolidate three current operations: an inbound warehouse for production parts, a distribution centre – including an inbound body store and finished car store – and a workshop.
The area is being developed as a new business location in West Sussex and will be reserved for mixed office, industrial and supporting development to deliver a new generation of buildings that maintain a high quality environmental impact. Rolls-Royce is the first major business to take advantage of the initiative.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, said, “The construction of our Technology and Logistics Centre is well underway and on track. This considerable investment reflects the ongoing success of our business and demonstrates our full commitment to building our future here in West Sussex.”
He continued, “Rolls-Royce Motor Cars makes a significant positive impact on the local economy and our business is a British luxury manufacturing success.”
In celebration, a new Rolls-Royce Wraith drove onto the construction site, marking the first time that one of the super-luxury manufacturer’s motor cars has been present at the new facility.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has recently announced that the Company will produce a new drophead tourer and will develop an all-round terrain new aluminium architecture in 2016.
