Woking, Surrey

Tuesday 12th September, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge will visit the McLaren Automotive Production Centre on Tuesday 12th September to meet the team behind the British automotive company, responsible for creating some of the world’s most pioneering sports and supercars.

The McLaren Production Centre is home to the innovation, development and production of McLaren’s road cars. The Centre’s impressive building was designed by British architect Norman Foster, to reflect the company’s design and engineering expertise. McLaren, a true British success story, has diversified from its racing roots to become one of the world’s leading automotive technology brands.

The Duke will visit the Centre in the afternoon, where he will be met by Mike Flewitt, McLaren Automotive CEO, who will show His Royal Highness the evolution of McLaren vehicles through the years.

The Duke will be taken to the factory floor of the McLaren Production Centre to walk the assembly line, where His Royal Highness will meet the world-class designers, engineers, and technicians behind the cars. The Duke will also be introduced to some of the company’s apprentices who are training to become the next generation of world-class automotive talent. McLaren has a track-record of opening up the industry to women, and The Duke will speak with some of the female employees from different parts of the company to hear more about their experiences in the sector.

As His Royal Highness’s tour concludes, The Duke will be asked to place the McLaren badge on one of the latest McLaren models, which is now being exported around the world.
