Tata Technologies, the global engineering services firm which is part of Tata Group which owns Jaguar Land Rover, has announced its plans to develop a new European headquarters building in Warwick.
The purpose-built European headquarters building represents a £16 million investment from Tata Technologies in the company’s operations in the UK and Europe. The investment reflects the strong outlook and pipeline of opportunities Tata Technologies has in the UK and internationally. The company says that the investment highlights Tata Technologies’ commitment to the West Midlands, a hub for technological and innovative engineering in the UK.
The expanded headquarters will create 200 additional jobs in Tata Technologies for design engineers and programme managers – creating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) job opportunities at all levels, from graduate to more senior roles. The building will hold approximately 600 staff in total.
The headquarters will house Tata Technologies’ engineering support services as well as a modern R&D centre that will further develop the company’s capabilities and growth opportunities especially in the automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery sectors.
The headquarters, which received planning permission from Warwick District Council on 28th January 2015, will be built on a 3.8 acre site. The new building will be located at Tachbrook Park, Warwick and the new building is expected to be operational in the second half of 2016.
Nick Sale, chief operating officer of Tata Technologies Europe, said: “These new headquarters showcase our ambition to continue to grow and expand Tata Technologies’ operations in the UK and Europe. The development marks an exciting new chapter in the company’s support of engineering excellence across the region.”
Cllr Andrew Mobbs, leader of Warwick District Council said: “This is wonderful news. As a Council, we are delighted that our efforts in assisting Tata Technologies to relocate to the District have paid off and it shows that we are committed to doing everything we can to support new and existing business in the area. This is a tremendous boost for both residents and prospective new business associates of Tata Technologies based in and around Warwick.”
