Morgan invests in infrastructure and recruitment drive
The Morgan Motor Company, manufacturer of iconic British sports cars, is to ramp up its recruitment programme, despite UK economic uncertainty and a challenging automotive industry landscape.
The Malvern-based firm, which this year celebrates its 110th year in business, now employs a record 233 staff. Thanks to the recruitment drive, over 40 new roles have been created so far this year, and there are currently 10 open job vacancies across various departments and levels of the business, including a number of new senior roles.
After starting 2019 with 204 employees, the company projects a workforce of 240 by the end of the year.
The increase in recruitment coincides with improvements to infrastructure at Morgan’s factory in Malvern Link, which has been home to the sports car manufacturer for the last 105 years.
A seven-figure sum has been set aside for continued improvements to the historic factory site, while a new Technology Centre and Visitor Centre are currently in discussion.
