An inspirational visit to Aston Martin in Newport Pagnell to meet Paul Squires their Managing Director exceeded all my expectations.
The original home of Aston Martin has turned back the clock and is now in full production of the iconic DB4 GT by the uncompromising and globally renowned skilled workforce.
Almost 60 years on from when and where the original car was made, I was able to witness the various stages of production and the excellent level of craftsmanship being poured into each of the specialist cars. Not surprisingly, all 25 have already been sold to buyers from across the globe.
It takes 4,500 man hours to lovingly restore a heritage Aston Martin which is testament to the 125 staff and their young apprentices who will ultimately be able to carry on the assurance of quality. This is fantastic news all round for the industry & employment in Newport Pagnell
