ROLLS-ROYCE is to build a new technology and logistics centre at Bognor Regis, close to the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood.

The new 30,000m sq center will consolidate a number of the firm’s current logistics functions and make way for future expansion.

The building will be located on the Oldlands Farm Business Park on the northern edge of Bognor, eight miles from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Around 200 people will be employed there, with a number of new jobs created as well as those transferred from existing areas.

The centre is planned to be fully operational in early 2016.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, the chief executive officer for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: ‘I am delighted to announce our new technology and logistics centre, which reflects the sustainable development and ongoing success of our business.

‘Every Rolls-Royce motor car is built at the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and this new facility will provide the required local logistics support for our current and future models.’
