Introduction

On Wednesday, Mclaren announced tha plant in Woking, Surrey will be closing and all production will be moving to Austin, Texas. The new plant is set to open in 2022 and will produce the next generation of McLaren supercars.

The company has been through a lot of changes in the past few years, including a management buyout led by Zak Brown. One of the first decisions made by the new management was to close the struggling U.S. division and focus on building the brand in Europe and Asia.

The move to Texas is part of McLaren’s new strategy to increase production and sales in North America. The company believes that there is significant growth potential in the region, especially in the sports car market.

The new Austin facility will be located just outside of downtown Austin near the Circuit of The Americas race track. It will span over 300 acres and employ over 500 workers.
