There’s Good News For Aston Martin’s Most Important Model Ever

Aston Martin’s brand new St Athan factory in south Wales has been closed since March 24, but that will soon change. According to Reuters, the production plant, which happens to be home to the Aston Martin DBX SUV, is slated to reopen from its coronavirus lockdown on May 5. However, operations at its Gaydon factory where the rest of its lineup is built will resume at a later and currently unannounced date.Ever since the lockdown began, company executives have been in talks with employees and trade unions regarding health and safety plans that would allow its factories to finally reopen. The St Athan facility will adopt health guidelines from the British and local governments. The fact that St Athan will be reopening in less than two weeks is very good news for an automaker still struggling financially.
