The DBX is the first Welsh-built production car in almost half a century, so each new hire is important. Moreover, the people who get selected to join the legendary marque will be skilled technicians, which means that they will be compensated for their effort.
While it is not clear if another automaker will build facilities in the UK after Brexit, that is something that comes as an advantage for Aston Martin Lagonda, as there are skilled workers in the area.
The region is known for having skilled laborers. For example, in Bridgend, Ford established a factory that was open for four decades. Right across the street from it, the folks at Ineos wanted to build a plant for their first vehicle, the Grenadier. But instead, Ineos decides to build the Grenadier in France, in a former Mercedes-Benz factory.
That plant was closed in September 2020, and over 1,000 jobs were lost at the time. Initially, over 1,644 people were employed at the site, but not all were involved in production.
It is critical to note that Bridgend is one hour away from St. Athan, but that is just one example of the fact that Wales is a region rich in history, especially in the automotive field. TVR wants to renovate a factory in the Ebbw Vale, which is also in Wales. Many analysts see the area of the UK as a promising site for vehicle manufacturing.
As usual, hiring people in factories and increasing production will also bring more jobs in what is described as supporting industry. It may involve suppliers, but it does not stop there, and such a facility leads to many other businesses thriving near a factory.
