The news that Jaguar Land Rover is to create a further 1,700 jobs in Solihull is testament to the hard work, skill and perseverance of the workers and management at the plant off Lode Lane. Many of us will remember back to 2008, in the depths of the recession, the workforce was shrinking along with the order books. Those were dark days. But what we have seen since is one of the biggest turnarounds in not just West Midlands but British business history. Jaguar Land Rover produces vehicles which thrill the motoring world and are wanted in the emerging economies of India and China. What's more, unlike some other manufacturers, Jaguar Land Rover is keeping its manufacturing base firmly in the UK.
