Bentley Excellence Centre delivers first car

Bentley’s new Excellence Centre has delivered its first vehicle.

The Excellence Centre combines traditional craft and state-of-the-art technology, with hand-picked staff all receiving enhanced training before starting at the centre.

Depending on model, colleagues complete a 500 to 650-point checklist that takes more than two hours to complete, with 20 cars a week undergoing an even more comprehensive quality audit to continually drive quality standards.

Peter Bosch, member of the board for manufacturing, said: “Colleagues wear white gloves to ensure that our hand-built cars leave the facility without so much as a fingerprint on. Their skill and passion is supported by digital innovations such as Artificial Intelligence, to ensure our current and future cars will continue to meet our customers’ high expectations.

“The investment in the facility is the latest step in our site transformation as we build Bentley for the future, reinventing our factory to prepare for the next stage in our growth. Our collaborative modern campus – as a carbon-neutral, innovative, low environmental impact site – plays a key role in helping to deliver our Beyond100 ambitions.”
