ASTON MARTIN

In February 2016, Cardiff Airport and St Athan Enterprise Zone beat off competition from more than 20 worldwide locations to secure Aston Martin as its new resident.

The iconic luxury car manufacturer announced its plans to take over the Superhangar to produce the new Aston Martin DBX. Full production is expected to begin in 2020 with the creation of 750 new jobs and a further 1000 in the supply chain.
