Top JLR supplier expands after further contract win

Posted on 17 Oct 2011 by The Manufacturer

Automotive manufacturer Sertec has moved into new premises in Coleshill after being awarded a contract to supply components for Jaguar Land Rover's Evoque model.

Sertec, which earlier this year took out Jaguar Land Rover’s top supplier award, supplies presswork and welded assemblies to Jaguar Land Rover. Currently the company employs 275 staff at its Coleshill factory, generating a turnover of £40m. It is anticipated the expansion at Trillennium could lead to an additional 25 jobs at the plant.

Graham Darby of GR Darby, who acted on behalf of Sertec, said: “The unit at Trillennium fitted the bill and the facility will be used for the production of body panels for the new Evoque model.”

The deal was brokered by Graham Darby of GR Darby & Co. in Coleshill, acting on behalf of Sertec, and Jonathan Robinson of DTZ in Birmingham, acting on behalf of Box Telematics.
