The Coventry-based London Taxi Company – manufacturer of the iconic London taxicab – has chosen Ansty Park as the site for a new state-of-the-art 80,000 sq metre factory to make the an upgraded “green” version of the classic London cab, due to be launched in 2018. Production of the current TX4 will remain at the company’s base in Holyhead Road, Coventry.

The London Taxi Company has also said that the new AnstyPark facility will create around 1,000 jobs. AnstyPark has already attracted considerable investment in technology, research and development and is home to the pioneering Manufacturing Technology Centre, which is also served by Consilium Recruit.

The new plant will ultimately have the capacity to build 36,000 vehicles a year. The investment has been backed by the UK Regional Growth fund and other UK and local government support.

Consilium director Steve Doyle said the company had achieved consistently successful outcomes and recruited some of the most skilled people in the sector for major manufacturers across the UK.

“We are delighted to be involved in such an important project for the region, and for automotive manufacture in Britain. The work will involve recruiting for some challenging positions, but we have a track record of recruiting a wide spread of engineering talent with the advanced skill-sets required for the engineering and manufacturing technologies of tomorrow,” he said.

Consilium Recruit – celebrating its 15th anniversary this year – was formed in 2001 by a group of engineering and manufacturing professionals. The company has placed industry talent into a variety of leading UK and European businesses, with clients including Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren and Bosch.

As well as its Stratford-upon-Avon base the Group has an office in Stourport-on-Severn.
