Recently Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced that at the Global Centre of Luxury Manufacturing Excellence at Goodwood, West Sussex, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars had resumed full two-shift production. With strict health and safety measures, the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars are now operating at pre-lockdown levels with all staff.
Returning to full two-shift production is a significant milestone and comes just four months after we became the first UK automotive company to restart manufacturing after lockdown. It reflects our business's long-term strength and resilience and the significant worldwide demand for our products, which have been boosted further by our new Ghost's recent launch. Says CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
Rolls-Royce becomes the first UK automotive manufacturer to reopen on 4th May, operating a single shift with office-based colleagues working from home wherever possible, after it voluntarily suspended production to protect its employees. Customer handover ceremonies, with appropriate social distancing, resumed in early June.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO also said that. Throughout Rolls-Royce, there is a renewed sense of energy, enthusiasm, and optimism, which gave him great confidence for their future. He also believes that it sends enormously positive signals to their local community, industry, and country. He wishes to thank his entire team for their determination and commitment, enabling them to reach that point rapidly. That they had done so while keeping everyone safe, which underlines that Rolls Royce is a family in which they look out for one another. He is particularly delighted that they have maintained their workforce. Their people and the skills and talents they bring to their business are fundamental to their success and make Rolls-Royce the most dynamic, fascinating, and exciting company in the world.
