Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is to build a 323,000 sq ft logistics and technology centres at Bognor Regis to consolidate a number of current logistics functions and allow for future expansion.
The centre, on the Oldlands Farm Business Park, will be eight miles from the Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood. It will be managed on behalf of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars by an external logistics provider, the name of the which has yet to be confirmed.
It 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 new site is planned to be fully operational in early 2016. Some 200 people will be employed at the site, with a number of new roles created in addition to those transferred from existing logistics functions.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive officer for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “Every Rolls-Royce motor car is built at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and this new facility will provide the required local logistics support for our current and future models.”
