Auto-Fasteners Ltd – New Contract

Auto Fasteners are delighted to extend our relationship with the Lear Corporation and in turn Jaguar Land Rover with a new contract. The contract is for the supply of specialist seat frame components for the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake X260 program, due to be launched in 2017. The components will be supplied by Auto-Fasteners to Lear’s production plant in Slovakia for assembly into the new seats before being shipped back to JLR production plants in the UK.

It is anticipated that the new replacement for the current Jaguar XF Sportbrake will be launched at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show with vehicles going on sale shortly after.

The current XF Sportbrake has been a big success for JLR in what was previously a market sector they had not been strong in. With sleek styling and stunning good looks the XF Sportbrake has retained the Jaguar reputation for building highly desirable cars.
