About Jaguar Land Rover’s Dubai regional headquarters
Jaguar Land Rover’s new regional headquarters in Dubai will cover about 14,000 square metres and is due to be complete by the first quarter of 2020. The headquarters will include a world-leading training workshop and a training showroom to optimise sales force training.
The new headquarters will aim to provide technical, engineering and administrative staff with the skills and expertise necessary to maintain Jaguar Land Rover’s position and ensure the high quality of service expected by customers in the region is maintained.
The deal was brokered between Jaguar Land Rover Ltd Middle East and North Africa and the Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) on Saturday, 17 February 2018. Dubai Silicon Oasis is the Emirates’ integrated, free zone technology park and will be home to a number of high tech providers.
Jaguar Land Rover employs over 43,000 staff globally, and provides support for a further 240,000 people via dealerships, local businesses and suppliers.
Dr Mohammed Alzarooni is the Vice Chairman and Chief Executive of DSOA and commented that the “partnership with JLR aligns with our goal of supporting the research and development of new mobility technologies, such as hybrid cars, electric vehicles, and artificial intelligence for vehicles.” He pointed out that DSOA has experienced a long term relationship with Jaguar Land Rover since first partnering in 2009 and welcomed the company’s “decision to expand its operations in the region through establishing its new regional headquarters and training academy at Dubai Silicon Oasis that testifies to the quality of support the hi-tech park provides to its business partners to help them achieve growth.”
