Aston Martin Lagonda Investing for Growth
Aston Martin Lagonda have announced two important new additions to its UK site operations. The Aston Martin Test and Development Centre at Silverstone and the creation of a central London office.
It means that Silverstone will become a new hub for prototype vehicle testing, focused on chassis dynamics and high-speed handling. "The company is now investing for growth across the Aston Martin and Lagonda brands," said Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and CEO. "I am particularly pleased that we can now call Silverstone home for dynamic testing and development."
Since the announcement of the company's seven-year Second Century Business Plan in early 2015, there has been a progressive retooling of every area of the business. With the addition of Silverstone and London, Aston Martin Lagonda will operate out of 10 locations across the UK and by the end of 2022 is set to employ 5,000 people. "Aston Martin will soon become one of the leading automotive employers in the UK", said Dr Palmer.
