Automotive - Aston Martin Plant
James Bond car maker Aston Martin has moved a step closer to opening a new factory in South Wales as the firm secured the land it will be built upon.
The luxury marque announced earlier this year it will build its new DBX model at a plant in St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan from 2020 following a worldwide search for a new manufacturing facility.
The development, as part of a £200 million investment, will be Aston Martin's second factory and will create an estimated 750 jobs at the plant and 1,000 jobs in the wider supply chain and local businesses.
