Royal visit marks landmark Aston Martin anniversary

Aston Martin has continued its year-long celebration of the brand’s historic 110th anniversary, with a special visit from His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester to the company’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The Duke toured the British manufacturer’s world-class centre for sports car design, innovation and engineering. He also had an opportunity to see its latest products, including the recently launched DB12 which is proudly hand built at the Warwickshire facility.

In addition to showcasing its next generation of sportscars, Aston Martin’s dedication to nurturing and empowering the next generation of talent was also evident with His Royal Highness meeting some of the company’s apprentices and graduates, spanning a diverse range of disciplines such as marketing, design, manufacturing and engineering.

Amedeo Felisa, chief executive officer of Aston Martin said: “Aston Martin is immensely proud of its unique connection with The Royal Family, having been previously honoured by visits from His Majesty King Charles III and Queen Elizabeth II. We are delighted to welcome His Royal Highness to Gaydon as we continue to mark a highly significant year for the company that sees the celebration of our 110th anniversary and the launch of the first of our next generation of sportscars.”
