DeGould goes live in Slovakia with JLR

31st October 2018

Jaguar Land Rover today opened its state-of-the-art €1.4bn (£1bn) manufacturing facility in Nitra, Slovakia, the first time a UK automotive company has opened a plant in this country.

“Global businesses require global operational footprints. While Jaguar Land Rover’s heart and soul remain firmly anchored in the UK, expanding internationally only enriches and strengthens our UK business. Today’s opening of our next generation manufacturing plant in Nitra, Slovakia represents the start of a new era in manufacturing for Jaguar Land Rover.”

Prof. Dr Ralf Speth CEO, Jaguar Land Rover

The new 300,000m² facility stands at the forefront of aluminium manufacturing and engineering expertise in Slovakia, with an annual capacity of 150,000 vehicles a year. Supporting the company’s ongoing commitment to deliver high technology lightweight vehicles to its customers, the first Land Rover Discovery rolled off the production line in September.

The plant incorporates cutting-edge technologies and it is the first in mainland Europe to use DeGould’s Auto-Track system at the end of the production line. The vehicle scans consist of 17 ultra hi-resolution images covering 360-degree views of the vehicle. The images are indexed by vehicle identification number (VIN), stored and aggregated with other images captured by DeGould’s Auto-Booths and DVM APP in Jaguar Land Rover’s finished vehicle supply chain.25
