Unite welcomes investment by TVR in Wales

22 March 2016

Unite Wales today welcomed the announcement by TVR that they will locate their new manufacturing facility in Wales.

Andy Richards, Unite Wales secretary, said:  “Hot on the heels of the Aston Martin announcement this is more excellent news for the Welsh manufacturing sector and our vibrant automotive supply chain.

"The addition of TVR to Wales growing list of prestigious inward investors, sends out a strong message that we are becoming the prime location for global companies to locate their European operations. This is much needed good news for our manufacturing sector and proof that the Welsh Labour government is continuing to deliver for Wales.

"The first minister Carwyn Jones and business minister Edwina Hart are proving that in the closing days of this Assembly they are continuing to work extremely hard to strengthen our economy.

"TVR’s investment is recognition that Wales has the skills and the workforce to manufacture top end high quality products. The Welsh government's commitment to attracting world class inward investment to our country continues to pay off."
