01 March 2013 #SMMT News

Toyota UK’s Engine Plant, located in Deeside, North Wales today welcomed the creation of 70 jobs at the plant in order to meet increased demand.

Recruitment has already started and the additional jobs are the result of Toyota vehicles produced in Brazil now receiving machined parts from the Deeside plant, as well as preparation for upcoming start of production of the Auris Touring Sports model at Toyota’s UK vehicle manufacturing plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire. Both activities will lead to increased demand for engines produced at the Deeside facility.

David Jones, Secretary of State for Wales who was visiting the Toyota plant today said: “Toyota has made a vital contribution to the growing success of the UK car manufacturing sector and to the creation of sustainable jobs in North Wales. It is a glowing example of collaboration between a global company and the UK, and a demonstration of why Wales continues to be a prime location to invest and do business.”

Richard Kenworthy, Director of Deeside engine manufacturing plant also commented: “This is great news for the plant and for Wales. Our TMUK members at the Deeside engine plant continue to demonstrate they can deliver the superior quality and efficiency that are vital for building our presence in a highly competitive marketplace.”
