Aston Martin Opens New Logistics Facility

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]ston Martin  today opened a new warehouse and logistics hub. Created to support the future expansion of the business, the new facility is located at Wellesbourne, close to the company’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

856f0f02-ea03-4b03-8f70-c0b603e361c8Representing a multi-million pound investment, the new development is the largest storage and distribution base in the company’s 102-year history.

Aston Martin Manufacturing Operations Director Keith Stanton 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.”

5a4a78e1-900b-4fe6-8d8e-712b4a29333eRunning 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).
