The British automaker is returning a second shift just four months after resuming production at Goodwood.

“Four months ago, we were the first British automaker to restart production after the quarantine, and today we celebrate the next important event – the return of the second shift. The move reflects the strength, resilience of our business and the significant global demand for our models, which has taken a leap forward with the launch of the new Ghost, ” – said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announces a double shift production at its Goodwood, West Sussex plant. This step means reaching the pre-quarantine level.

The plant will enter the second shift two weeks after the world premiere of the new Ghost, which has won worldwide public and media acclaim. Demand for all Rolls-Royce models is growing rapidly in global markets, especially in regions past the peak of the pandemic.

Since the imposition of isolation in the UK, Rolls-Royce has voluntarily suspended production to protect its employees, suppliers and their families.

On May 4, Rolls-Royce was the first automotive manufacturer to reopen a one-shift plant, with office workers working remotely whenever possible. In early June, Goodwood resumed hand-over ceremonies to customers while maintaining social distancing measures.

“We see a surge of energy, enthusiasm and optimism in Rolls-Royce. This instills confidence in our future; I also believe it sends positive signals to the local community, our industry and the country as a whole. I would like to thank the entire team for the commitment and determination that allowed us to reach this level so quickly. The fact that we have managed to save our team means that Rolls-Royce is a real family in which everyone cares for each other. I am especially pleased that we have retained our staff. Our people, their talent and skill are the foundation of our business success, making Rolls-Royce the most dynamic, exciting and inspiring company in the world, ”said Müller-Otvos.
