Rolls-Royce technology and logistics centre on track for 2016 launch

Rolls-Royce Motor Car has begun construction on its new technology and logistics centre at the Oldlands Farm Business Park, Bognor Regis.

The new site, close to the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, West Sussex, is well on track for a successful launch in early 2016.

The 30,000m2 facility will provide logistics support to the company’s manufacturing plant and head office 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.

Rolls-Royce Motor Car’s chief executive officer Torsten Müller-Ötvös 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.

“Rolls-Royce Motor Cars makes a significant positive impact on the local economy and our business is a British luxury manufacturing success.”

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has recently announced that the company will produce a new drophead tourer in 2016, and confirmed development of a high-bodied car, with an all-new aluminium architecture that can cross any terrain.
