Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority announced on Sunday, August 30, that the construction on the new regional headquarters of Jaguar Land Rover Limited Middle East and North Africa (JLR) is now complete.

The 14,000-square-metre facility comprises of a training academy, an engineering testing unit and a customer relations centre.

The academy includes a workshop space and a training showroom for JLR’s sales force too.

“We are excited to see the regional headquarters of our long-standing partners, Jaguar Land Rover MENA, through to completion. We are confident in the quality of support the hi-tech park provides to its business partners to help them achieve remarkable growth, and are keen to witness the prosperous future of the company,” said Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, Vice Chairman and CEO of DSOA

“We are proud to have achieved this milestone in our regional expansion, and grateful for DSOA’s support in our endeavours. We are confident that the state-of-the-art regional office will enable us to add great value to our operations in the Middle East and North Africa,” added Bruce Robertson, Managing Director of JLR Middle East and North Africa.

In March, JLR said that it would begin constructing a parts distribution centre in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA).

JLR already has an operational parts distribution centre in Jebel Ali since 2014 that services nine markets in the Middle East and North Africa.

The new parts distribution facility is expected to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2021, though the migration of operations from the old facility will begin in November this year itself.

Last month, former Renault CEO Thierry Bolloré was appointed as the new CEO of JLR. The carmaker, owned by India’s Tata Motors, increased its savings target for the year to GBP2.5bn ($3.3bn) after recording a GBP413m pre-tax loss for the quarter ended in June.
