Bentley has announced the biggest site development in the company’s history. This expansion is the latest step in preparing the infrastructure to bring the world’s first luxury SUV to roads in 2016. A £40 million investment will expand its headquarters in Crewe early next year, creating 300 roles within engineering, manufacturing, quality, sales and marketing and project management.

“With Bentley's new research and development centre, we will develop a new generation of Bentleys, which will continue our commitment of luxury, performance, quality and engineering excellence.

New site creates new jobs

Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne said:
“Bentley is an iconic British Brand that exports around the world. Their decision to create another 300 jobs in R&D on a new site providing close to 1,000 new jobs is fantastic news for Crewe and for Britain.

“These highly skilled jobs in this export industry are exactly the kind of opportunities we want to see created which is why in yesterday’s Autumn Statement I provided further incentives for R&D in the UK.

“The investment will not only create jobs at Bentley, but support many more through suppliers across the UK.
I want Britain to be a country where companies want to invest and create jobs, as Bentley is doing today.”
