Jaguar Land Rover Classic is coming to Georgia and will create 75 jobs in Chatham County. The new operations hub in Savannah will be Jaguar Land Rover Classic’s first facility in the U.S.
“Georgia’s business-friendly climate and world-class logistics infrastructure continue to attract industry leaders like Jaguar Land Rover Classic,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “By choosing Savannah for its first facility outside of Europe, Jaguar Land Rover Classic will enjoy the benefits of close proximity to the Port of Savannah while streamlining services for American customers.”
Jaguar Land Rover Classic’s new facility will be located near Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and the Port of Savannah, the largest single container terminal in North America. Construction of the new facility will begin in autumn.
“Creating a dedicated facility in the U.S. – one of the largest markets for classic car enthusiasts – is an important and exciting step for Jaguar Land Rover Classic. We’re delighted to bring the future-proofing classic expertise and support we’ve nurtured in the UK direct to US clients,” said Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director Tim Hannig. “The Savannah site is the perfect location for us: a charming setting combining a passionate community and excellent transport links that will make it easier for US clients to benefit from the authentic services and expertise Jaguar Land Rover Classic provides.”
The new facility will provide access to a range of authentic Jaguar and Land Rover Classic cars, services, parts and experiences. The facility will also include a 42-bay workshop for comprehensive vehicle health checks, service and repairs for all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles out of production for a decade or more.
“Today Jaguar Land Rover Classic, a world-class company with a renowned reputation, chose Savannah to produce world-class products,” said Trip Tollison, president and CEO of the Savannah Economic Development Association. “The high-wage jobs and investment they will bring to the Savannah region will make an immediate impact on our region.”
