Our Site History

Impression Technologies is located on the outskirts of Coventry, at Lyons Park, named after Sir William Lyons, who started the pioneering Swallow Sidecar Company, which eventually became Jaguar Cars. It was previously known as The Brown’s Lane plant, which occupied the entire site that is now Lyons Park. This was the home of Jaguar’s production from 1951 to 2005.​

ITL is proud to be located on the site where many classic Jaguar models were built (the units in the business park – C, D, and E – were named after the original Jaguar press lines). We aim to continue Coventry’s heritage of innovation, automotive, manufacturing, and engineering in creating new generations of vehicles that can be admired all over the world.
