Rolls-Royce Motor Cars expands Leathershop unit

Article by Anita Panait, on January 2, 2014

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has expanded its Leathershop following the continued success of Phantom and Ghost models and the Wraith. The expansion resulted in the creation of 10 new positions in the machinist team, which was started with just four people in 2002. It now boasts of 40 skilled associates working across two shifts.

The Leathershop’s machinist team is considered the most international as they have members from the United Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, Portugal, Ukraine, Germany and Poland. Members also come from a number of industries like saddlery, ladies lingerie, upholstery, couture work and sail-making. The machinist team also hosts interns, apprentices and graduates during their time at Leathershop.

“I am delighted to confirm that we have expanded our Leathershop here at the Home of Rolls-Royce,” remarked Andrew Monachan, General Manager Leathershop, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Potential team members are expected to have suitable skills but do not need to currently be working as a machinist. Potential team members may only need skills gained in a previous job or as a hobbyist. Leathershop will also provide full and extensive training for potential candidates.
