Toyota invests in Welsh engine plant
This is the second major investment by Toyota in its Deeside plant in the past year. The £88 million cash injection brings the Japanese car maker’s total investment in North Wales up to £700 million.
The Welsh engine plant is one of two Toyota factories in Britain, along with Burnaston in Derbyshire. Between them, these factories employ over 4900 people.
The executive vice president of Toyota, Tokuichi Uranishi, said: ’This announcement recognises the quality of the UK workforce and demonstrates Toyota’s confidence in our UK investment and continued effort towards local production.’
