Exceptional demand for Rolls-Royce cars

Full production as Rolls-Royce looks to supply demand

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced to the industry that it is currently working at full capacity in order to meet increased demand.

Sales figures from the firm show that there are 22 per cent more vehicles being retailed by the company and this is expected to continue into 2008 with the unveiling of the new Phantom Drophead Coupe.

According to Ian Robertson, chairman and chief executive at the automaker, these represent "exciting times" for Rolls-Royce.

"Our challenge is to cope with exceptional customer demand. Now we look forward to significant changes for the whole organisation as we prepare for the launch of our future model series," he said.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph has reported that the firm has announced plans to expand its plant at Goodwood, Sussex to cope with the activity.

Some 300 to 400 extra workers will form a second assembly line at the site, it added.
