Posted on 5 Mar 2008 by The Manufacturer

Toyota has announced it is to make an £88 million investment at its Deeside, North Wales facility.

The investment will enable the plant to begin production of a brand new small 4-cylinder 1.3-litre petrol engine as of late 2009.

“This announcement recognises the quality of the UK workforce and demonstrates Toyota’s confidence in our UK investment and continued efforts towards local production,” said Mr Tokuichi, executive vice president of Toyota Motor Corporation. “This new engine, along with the recent investment here at Deeside, means this plant will have two of the most advanced engine manufacturing lines in the world.”
