A significant and unique business park development with a ready-to-use commercial airfield on site will launch at St. Athan, South Wales, on September 30th.
Bro Tathan Business Park - approximately 5 miles from Cardiff Airport - is situated in the Vale of Glamorgan on the airfield which was transferred from military to civilian control in April 2019, clearing the way for new and exciting business opportunities.
Global car icon Aston Martin is already operating on site as anchor tenant with significant available space across Bro Tathan to attract further businesses and organisations. The property and land owners Welsh Government and the global property agent Savills have big ambitions for the site given its scale and the proximity to an airfield for companies needing easy access to air freight, UK and international markets.
The airfield will be operated by neighbouring Cardiff Airport, and the resurfaced 1,800m runways have already been put to excellent use by companies such as eCube Solutions, who are already occupying the site.
Economy and Transport Minister Ken Skates said, “This area has over 50 years’ aerospace and defence heritage, and has access to skills that have already attracted the prestigious Aston Martin to Wales, beating off competition from 20 other worldwide locations.
“The iconic luxury car manufacturer will produce the new Aston Martin DBX amongst other vehicles here, with the creation of 750 new jobs and a further 1,000 in the supply chain.
“The Bro Tathan development is going to create a buzz across the world, and I look forward to welcoming many more prestigious companies as it grows.”
Scott Caldwell, Director of real estate services provider, Savills, said: “This unique combination of business park facilities and commercial airfield in a terrific location close to an international airport and a capital city makes for a compelling business proposition. We’ll be pushing this globally and we know there will be significant interest from inward investors worldwide.”
The event on 30 September will unveil the new Bro Tathan brand with exciting announcements regarding the future development of the site.
