Lotus To Create Up To 150 New Jobs In Coventry

More than 100 new jobs are to be created at in Coventry by sports car manufacturers Lotus when expanded facilities are opened in the city.

A new design studio and workshops are to be built at the former MSA site on the A45 in Allesley to enable the Coventry operation to take on more projects.

Lotus bought the site two years ago to give it a foothold in the Midlands at the heart of the automotive industry.

Once the structural changes are complete Lotus will have the capacity to have up to 250 staff working there.

The company is expanding the facilities so it can take on a range of projects from prototype development and engine tuning to complete vehicle design and build, as it did recently with the Vauxhall VX220.

Spokeswoman Sandra Hayashi said new recruits would be taken on as the company won new contracts.

She said:

“The changes are being made in Coventry because if we’ve got a project we need to have the facilities it run.

“We have staff that come over from our headquarters in Norfolk to start a project off and then we recruit locally.”
