GOODWOOD, U.K. —— Rolls-Royce Motor Cars confirmed that construction of the company’s new Technology and Logistics Centre at Bognor Regis, close to the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, West Sussex, is now well underway and on target to be fully operational in early 2016. Ground was first broken in November and the site is currently being levelled in readiness for building works to start in the New Year.
The Technology and Logistics Centre is located on the Oldlands Farm Business Park on the northern edge of Bognor Regis, eight miles from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The new 30,000m2 centre will consolidate a number of current logistics functions and allow for future expansion. The Centre will be ideally situated to take advantage of the forthcoming Bognor Regis Northern Relief Road, due to open in February 2015.
The Technology and Logistics Centre will consolidate three current operations – an inbound warehouse for production parts, a distribution centre and a workshop for car preparation.
Frank Ludwig, Director of Manufacturing, speaking from the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, said, “I am delighted that construction of our Technology and Logistics Centre is now well underway. The development reflects not only the sustainable growth and ongoing success of our business, but also our investment into the future of manufacturing here in West Sussex.”
