Unite Wales today welcomed Aston Martin Lagondas announcement that they will build their new SUV vehicle in Wales.
Andy Richards Wales Secretary said: “This is a real coup for Wales and a landmark investment. Aston Martin is a prestigious brand, and its investment in Wales is much needed good news for our manufacturing sector. The decision to locate it Wales will provide a massive boost to our automotive supply chain.
A lot of credit must go to First Minister Carwyn Jones on delivering this boost for Wales. In addition the foresight and tenacity shown by Business Minister Edwina Hart in securing the deal must also be recognised.
Aston Martins investment is recognition that Wales has the skills and workforce to manufacture top end high quality products. Welsh Governments commitment to attracting world class inward investment to our country has today been rewarded”.
