Do you remember the Aston Martin DBX concept from two years ago? Well, apparently it’s actually going to be created, according to a press release issued today by the automaker.
The press release details their new manufacturing facility in St. Athan, a community located in South Wales, where the SUV will be produced in 2019.
“Due to its sheer size and scale, the St Athan Super Hangars represented an excellent opportunity for us to build our second manufacturing facility, within the envelope of an existing structure,” said Aston Martin President and CEO Dr. Andy Palmer. “It is perhaps fitting that St Athan is, like our headquarters and sports car factory at Gaydon, a former Royal Air Force base.”
Aston Martin plans on creating 1,000 new jobs across their two manufacturing sites by 2020, and a further 3,000 being added to the “supply chain and local businesses in Wales.” This is all part of Aston Martin’s industrial expansion plans.
