Luxury carmaker Bentley is creating over 140 jobs.
More than 50 apprentices will be taken on at the company's headquarters in Crewe, as well as 90 engineers.
Bentley is expanding its model range under an £800 million investment over three years.
The announcement follows a record year in 2013, when the company built more than 10,000 models, the highest in its 95-year history.
Bentley motors are creating 100 new jobs at their headquarters in Crewe.
The factory is to become a centre of excellence for Volkswagen W12 engine production.
Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, said: “This is an important step, not just for Bentley but also for the UK manufacturing sector.
This W12 centre of excellence is recognition of the long standing engine manufacturing expertise we have that has resulted in performance improvements across the model ranges over recent years.
The production of this advanced engine and its future generations will bring new technologies and skills to Crewe.”
The Crewe-based luxury car maker Bentley is leading a project that hopes to save hundreds of jobs.
It will work with its suppliers in a £9m scheme to boost production of parts for luxury cars.
Part of the money behind the project is coming from a Government-backed initiative aimed at safeguarding supply chains across a variety of industries.
Known as the 'Niche Luxury Vehicle Cluster Supplier Capacity Building Programme', Bentley's project is expected to create almost 400 direct jobs and safeguard more than 150 other roles.
It will be financed by £2m from the Department for Business's Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative. The other £7m will come from private partners.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said: “This is a welcome boost to jobs and growth in the North West. This investment will secure Britain’s future as a world leader in both traditional and new technologies.”
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has confirmed the creation of 500 future jobs and the protection of a further 200 at Bentley's factory in Crewe.
In addition to employing 4000 people, the Bentley factory will now create 500 new jobs and secure another 200 existing ones. It's been awarded £3 million from the government's Regional Growth Fund.
