Halewood, Liverpool

Land Rover Discovery Sport

Jaguar Land Rover's Halewood Operations Advanced Manufacturing Centre is world renowned for lean manufacturing excellence.

Jaguar inherited the 300 acre Halewood site, which was built in 1963, from Ford Motor Company in 2000. Following a massive investment and ambitious culture change programme, the Jaguar X-Type was launched in 2001.

In 2007 Halewood became a Jaguar Land Rover plant with the introduction of Land Rover Freelander 2. The Jaguar X-Type was discontinued in 2011 and the plant launched the much acclaimed Range Rover Evoque.

The Range Rover Evoque has become somewhat of a phenomenon for the Range Rover brand – selling over 200,000 vehicles in the first two years of its production, making it to date the best-selling Land Rover vehicle ever.

The plant is now producing the new, and highly innovative Discovery Sport., which went on sale early in 2015. Visitors to the Halewood site will have a unique opportunity to see Discovery Sport vehicle being built alongside the award-winning Range Rover Evoque.

Within the newly refurbished Education Business Partnership Centre students can gain valuable insights into all aspects of Jaguar Land Rover, through the numerous curriculum-related modules on offer. Students can also try hands-on activities to experience key aspects engineering and manufacturing careers which will strengthen their employability skills and world of work awareness.
