In a mass-produced world, Bentley prides itself on creating hand-crafted perfection. The precision of the present meets the passion of the past in our state-of-the-art factory at Pyms Lane. There’s a fine balance here between the modern, hi-tech production line and the skill of our traditional artisans, whose expertise with leather, metal and wood hand-finishes every Bentley. The level of detail is breathtaking – it takes 25 hours to contrast stitch the interior leather of the Flying Spur and another 15 hours is needed to create the veneered interior.
But manufacturing in Crewe at Bentley goes far beyond our renowned craftsmanship. Each car requires thousands of individual components; every part of the assembly process requires hours of skilled work; and every detail must be perfect before a car is signed off for delivery to the owner. Behind the finished product lies a huge team of people in automotive manufacturing roles: Production, Logistics and Planning. Working together, they help us to create each car on time and on budget.
Production manages every aspect of assembling and producing our cars. Our Planning team looks at the long term from concept to full production – a timescale of years. Logistics co-ordinates hugely complex supply chains to ensure we have all the right parts and components in place. Understanding the implications of what we are doing today and how it affects what we are planning over the next five years is vital to our continuing success.
