Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron has thrown his weight behind Labour Welsh Government plans to bring Aston Martin car production to South Wales.
The Welsh Government has been courting AM for over a decade and narrowly missed getting them to open a plant in Rumney, Cardiff when they eventually picked Gaydon instead.
Now AM is looking for a new site to build its next generation electric sports car and is considering sites in the UK and abroad.
The Prime Minister yesterday said there was “real potential” in releasing surplus land at RAF St Athan to AM. The deal will be conditional on AM gaining maximum Government support as it is not a cash-rich company and is now very closely aligned with Mercedes-Benz for its powertrains.
He also confirmed a £390 Million contract and 250 skilled jobs servicing the newest generation of military vehicles in the Sirhowy Valley, South East Wales.
