He said: “The news about the investments and jobs being created at Solihull is a fantastic start to the new year and is yet another sign of the ongoing success story that is Jaguar Land Rover.

“Particularly pleasing is that the Regional Growth Fund application supported by the GBSLEP is yielding 200 of the new jobs being created as it shows tangible results from this source of funding.

“The GBSLEP will continue to work to support major employers such as Jaguar Land Rover, but also strengthen the supply chain through initiatives such as the £125 million Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative.”
