JLR given Queen’s Award for Enterprise

JLR given Queen’s Award for EnterpriseJaguar Land Rover has achieved a prestigious 2014 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, reflecting sustained sales success driven by global exports to over 170 countries.

The award was for JLR’s, “outstanding overseas sales growth over the last three years”. The official award notification to Jaguar Land Rover reads: “Her Majesty The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the Prime Minister’s recommendation that your business should receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, this year.”

Exports account for 80% of all vehicles Jaguar Land Rover produces at its three UK manufacturing plants.  In 2013, the company sold 425,006 vehicles, up 19% on the previous year. JLR’s largest export regions are mainland Europe, North America and China, together accounting for 60% of all export sales.  

In addition, the company’s share of vehicle sales in regions beyond its traditional major markets in the UK, US and Europe has increased from below 15% in 2008 to more than 40% now, as it has focused on driving a balanced global sales presence.

Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said of the Queen's Award: "We are delighted and honoured to receive this recognition of Jaguar Land Rover's contribution to British enterprise.  Our success is thanks to our dedicated and passionate employees who create exciting vehicles that are in high demand with customers around the world.

"The more we build our business, the more opportunity we can create to improve the lives of many families, by recruiting and training more people, investing in facilities and communities, and strengthening the overall growth of the UK economy.

"This Queen's Award is the perfect complement to us being named Responsible Business of the Year 2013, in recognising our success internationally as well as the many positive ways we contribute to society."

This is the first Queen’s Award won by Jaguar Land Rover as a single company, but each of the brands has won six times in the past between 1967 and 2008. JLR is the only automotive company to hold all three Royal Warrants, as a supplier of goods and services to the households of HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.
