08 Jun Sarginsons Revving up for JLR Castings
Sarginsons is set to start on a new programme of work on parts for the next generation of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.
The company, which is based in Coventry, has invested to upgrade its sand foundry which will see the firm making new components for the aluminium chassis of future vehicles for the global automotive giant. Work is set to start in June after the company invested in new process controls and mixing equipment at its manufacturing facility in Torrington Avenue. Sarginsons will provide the parts to two tier one suppliers to Jaguar Land Rover, which will form part of the company’s next generation of vehicles.
Evans stated: “The mood in the industry is positive. We are working on several automotive programmes and some non-automotive contracts too. There is a great deal of uncertainty around what Brexit will mean but we are seeing no let-up in orders and, also, we are seeing some of our clients looking to open bases in the UK – and in this region – to ensure there is no issue when it comes to supplying some of the major manufacturers in our area. So it is an exciting period for our industry and we are very pleased to be right in the middle of the action when it comes to manufacturing and further investment will follow later in the year.”
