Controversial Rolls Royce Plant Delayed

by: Jenny McLane

The automotive industry has become very interested in Rolls Royce’s plans on building a new test facility in the area of Lanarkshire in the United Kingdom. After all, this one has been said to cost the auto company some £45 million. You see, Rolls Royce was actually planning on creating and building such a test plant in its efforts to actually consolidate and merge the operations for two of its plants currently operating in the area of East Kilbride. One is a repair and overhaul factory while the other structure has been created as a test bed facility.

According to Rolls Royce, they are planning on bringing both of these facilities in one plant which would be the new one to be built at the Langland Business Park. It would be built on 36,000 square feet of land. Of course, when the new plant would be constructed, the two ones in East Kilbride would still function and produce Rolls Royce products from Rolls Royce car parts to Rolls Royce vehicles.

This has been actually confirmed by a spokesperson from the auto company. In fact, he further explained that the operations of the two facilities in East Kilbride would still continue. Workers in the plant would need not worry about their jobs for the company has no plans on cutting off the number of workers nor lay them off their current jobs.

The spokesperson further shares that the decision on the delay of the new Rolls Royce plant has been brought about by a number of factors. One of these was the weakening US dollar. Aside from this, he further says that the delay was also caused by the high cost of raw materials needed to build the new facility as well as the increase in building costs.

“The combined effect of a number of external factors on the Langland’s business case has necessitated a delay in the proposed investment. Rolls Royce remains committed to Scotland and this decision does not affect the company’s intention to grow the East Kilbride business, which will be taking on a new strip and build work for the RB211 Gas Turbine Module before the end of this year,” states the Rolls Royce representative.
