Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is building a new technology and logistics centre near its Goodwood manufacturing base in the UK for an undisclosed sum. Work started on the site in Bognor Regis, eight miles from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, during November and the 30,000 sq.m facility is expected to be fully operational in early 2016. The company said a logistics provider to manage the facility has not yet been appointed.
The Technology and Logistics Centre will 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 for car preparation.
The existing inbound warehouse is managed by logistics provider Syncreon, while the other functions are managed in house.
“I am delighted that construction of our Technology and Logistics Centre is now well underway,” Frank Ludwig, director of manufacturing at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “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.”
