The company currently employs around 3,700 people in Crewe, which is home to all operations including design, R&D, engineering and production. 2013 saw a 19 % increase in global sales and with 10,120 cars sold, represents the highest sales figure in Bentley’s 95-year history. The sales were fairly evenly split between Bentley’s major customer regions: The Americas, China, UK and Europe, and the Middle East.
Bentley is committed to making a positive contribution to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of the community. Playing an active role in the region, staff participate in community activities and charitable contributions are supplemented by direct support to a range of organizations. Bentley was the first manufacturer in the luxury vehicle sector to create a strategy for reducing emissions. This delivered a 40 % improvement in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions: outstanding levels for the luxury performance sector. Bentley also addresses environmental impact reduction of the factory in the areas of energy, water, emissions and waste. The most recent initiative is the new solar panel system with over 20,000 panels, which is the UK’s largest roof-mounted solar system and is estimated to produce up to 40 % of Bentley’s energy requirements at peak times, whilst simultaneously reducing CO2 emissions by over 2,500 t per year
