The facility at the company’s headquarters is home to more than 400 engineers and covers 7,200m² over four floors. It was constructed in just seven months and is the first stage of a planned expansion at Crewe, which aims to develop the site as an industry-leading, modern, efficient manufacturing facility.

Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley chairman and CEO, said, “Our research and development center, 25 Pyms Lane, is where a new generation of Bentleys will be developed, which will continue our commitment to luxury, performance, quality and engineering excellence.”

The opening was attended by a number of high profile guests including HRH Princess Anne. Dürheimer added, “We are honored that we could welcome Her Royal Highness once again to our expanding headquarters, not just to celebrate the continued evolution of our site, but to demonstrate first-hand the skill of our engineers, craftspeople and trainees here in Crewe.”
