Coming to this a little late, but you do realise that a doubling would be a) a 100% increase, not the 50% stated, and b) staff count of 940, not the 700 stated.
They've made a significant increase, yes, but to say "double" is overstating it by about ... double! ( )
Yeah you are correct going by that article but I have heard figures starting at around 400 staff when they took over from Lotus increasing to anywhere from 700-800 now so not that far off double then is it.
"The team has been heavily reinforced in every sector, so much so that the team is now closer to that of the top teams with over 800 employees (without the drivers)."
Regardless like you said the changes are still significant. That article also states the following
"Renault has been doubling the size of its composites facility at Enstone over the summer break, an expansion that will alleviate a delay in producing parts."
