Airtherms track record of successful and efficient projects was demonstrated by the recent installation of our flue system at Jaguar Land Rover Solihull. Airtherm designed the flue system within tight parameters but still ensured flow and pressure were within the correct requirements for roof termination and back pressure to the boilers. Airtherm are extremely proud to be giving an opportunity to be part of the project in a town with such deep and historic routes within the jaguar land rover project.

Originally two farms, Wharhall and Fordrove, were purchased in 1936 by the British Government on which to build a shadow factory in preparation for any potential war with Nazi Germany. Construction was started almost immediately, with the factory complete as a shell and placed in mothballs in late 1938. At the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, the factory was allocated to the Coventry-based Rover Company, who were assigned the task to build Bristol Hercules engines.

Over 80 years later the factories have seen many changes but are still an integral part of British engineering and manufacturing, the Solihull Jaguar Land Rover Plant is the main producer of the classic Range Rover car.
