Luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin has opened its new warehouse and logistics facility in Warwickshire.
Designed by Corstorphine + Wright, the new development will be the largest storage and distribution base in Aston Martin’s 102-year history.
Located in Wellesbourne, it has created 40 jobs and will support the future expansion of the business.
Keith Stanton, Aston Martin Manufacturing Operations Director, said: “The opening of this superb new facility at Wellesbourne is a vital part of our Second Century Plan.
“Ensuring we have the right materials in the right place at the right time is, of course, fundamental to our manufacturing process. As the volume and complexity of our operations increases in the months and years ahead, we will be relying on the team at Wellesbourne to help us deliver our exciting new generation of Aston Martin sports cars.”
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 Gaydon.
