The machinist team was launched with just four people in 2002 and currently has 40 skilled associates working across two shifts. Current team members come from a variety of industries, including saddlery, ladies lingerie, upholstery, couture work and sail-making. The team also hosts interns, apprentices and graduates during their time at the company.

Andrew Monachan, General Manager Leathershop, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “I am delighted to confirm that we have expanded our Leathershop here at the Home of Rolls-Royce. Every one of our cars is hand built to order and we are reintroducing craft skills that, in many cases, would otherwise have lain dormant or been lost completely.”
