Luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India's Tata Motors, announced on Thursday plans to create more than 1,000 jobs at a plant in central England, in a boost for Britain's struggling economy.

"The company has announced plans to recruit more than 1,000 members of staff at its advanced manufacturing plant in Solihull," JLR said in a statement.

"These posts are being created in support of the business's stated ambition to deliver 40 significant product actions over the next five years thanks to a multi-billion-pound investment in product creation."

Tata has enjoyed huge success with the Jaguar and Land Rover brands since acquiring them for $2.3 billion from US car giant Ford in 2008.
