Castle Bromwich – Jaguar car factory tour

22 November 2013

car manufacturing

An auction at a Preston Grasshoppers RFC mini-junior sportsman evening led to Tim Haley and a group of businessman touring the Jaguar factory production lines at their enormous 100 acre Castle Bromwich manufacturing facilities on Wednesday 13th November.

The site was originally developed in the 1930’s as a ‘shadow’ armaments factory which delivered thousands of Spitfire fighters and Lancaster bombers to the RAF during WW2.

The factories now turn out all of the Jaguar range of cars including XF, XJ, XK and F series models with 3,500 employees producing over 60,000 units per annum. The vast majority of models are actually left hand drives destined for the USA and China with the new F series selling like ‘hot cakes’!

Don’t be surprised to hear Tim dropping Production KPI Boards, Yamazumi Boards and  Kanban – in to the conversation the next time you see him!
