Auto retailer Jardine Motors has announced plans for a new dual brand Jaguar Land Rover retail site in Wolverhampton, and has opened an interim showroom ahead of the all-new facility’s completion in around 18 months time. The new opening will expand Jaguar Land Rover’s presence in the town – and to six franchises nationally – which sits in the manufacturer’s heartland, and will include both new and approved used car sales and aftersales.

To support the new site, Jardine Motors Group has been on a major recruitment drive across the Midlands, taking on 48 new starters for the new Wolverhampton Land Rover site alone in addition to the 10 percent increase in new employees who have joined the existing Jaguar Wolverhampton business.

Commenting on the company’s plans, Neil Williamson, Chief Executive of Jardine Motors Group, said: “We’ve seen really solid performance in the first half of 2016 and we hope to maintain this momentum with the opening of new sites like Wolverhampton as well as our Milton Keynes dual-brand Jaguar Land Rover showroom which is due to open later this year. We believe our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover is key to our overall business success.”
