Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer said that this is an exciting time for Aston Martin Lagonda. The company's second luxury manufacturing facility is now producing cars and is ready to go into full production in H1 2020. The facilities and manufacturing teams, led by VP and Chief Manufacturing Operations Officer Keith Stanton have done an outstanding job in getting the factory ready almost a year before full production starts, on time and on budget. The St Athan site was announced around three years back in 2016 and since then it has created over 200 jobs with 550 more expected to create in the coming months.

Aston Martin DBX is expected to be launched in India by the end of 2020.

This production facility is responsible for the creation of 3,000 additional jobs indirectly across the supply chain and local businesses. It will be fully functional in the first half of 2020, as originally planned by Aston Martin. Last year, the St Athan facility was also named as Aston Martin Lagonda’s “Home of Electrification” and the manufacturing home of the Lagonda brand. The testing phase of the DBX SUV commenced last year in Welsh countryside and the SUV is still being tested rigorously. Over the last few months the DBX has been put through its paces in all environments from the Arctic Circle to the unique challenges of the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
