Representing a multi-million
pound investment, the new development is the largest storage and distribution base in the company's 102-year history.
"The opening of this superb new facility at Wellesbourne is a vital part of our Second Century Plan," said Aston Martin Manufacturing Operations Director Keith Stanton.
Running to almost a quarter-of-a-million square feet of storage, operations and office space, the Wellesbourne facility functions as a centralised warehouse for supplier deliveries and provides a steady stream of production-critical materials for use in Aston Martin's global manufacturing base at nearby Gaydon.
Almost a year in the planning and construction, the development has created around 40 new jobs, and employs 90 staff in total. The site has been painstakingly laid out and carefully constructed to demanding environmental standards. It has secured a 'Very Good' environmental rating according to the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
