McLaren Automotive gets keys to new Yorkshire factory, creating over 200 manufacturing jobs

McLaren Automotive has taken control of its new £50 million facility in Sheffield

New Sheffield based McLaren Composites Technology Centre is key to continuing production expansion to meet demand with the company having already delivered 15,000 cars since 2011.

Following completion of the newly constructed building, McLaren now has the job of turning it into a factory in which to build its lightweight carbon fibre tubs. Once up and running, the MCTC will create the Monocage chassis used in the entire range of McLaren road cars.

Once produced at the MCTC, the carbon fibre chassis will then be transported to the existing McLaren Technology Centre in Woking and turned into finished supercars.

At present 45 McLaren Automotive employees are involved in the set-up of the new MCTC. Once fully operational in 2019, McLaren expects the new £50m facility to create over 200 highly skilled jobs throughout the Sheffield region.
