Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Deeside Plant to produce next generation hybrid engines


Economy Minister Edwina Hart has welcomed the news that Toyota Manufacturing UK (TMUK) is to build next generation hybrid engines at its Deeside plant in North Wales in a £7m investment supported by the Welsh Government.
The 1.8 litre hybrid engines will be exported to Turkey, where the future crossover model based on the Toyota C-HR concept will be built. The investment by Toyota Motor Europe in Deeside will be supported by £700,000 from the Welsh Government.
On a visit to Toyota’s plant on Deeside Enterprise Zone, the Minister said: “This is excellent news and I am delighted this very significant investment has been secured for Toyota’s facility on Deeside. It will not only provide a platform for growth in what is an extremely competitive market but will help secure the long term sustainable future of the plant and safeguard skilled, well paid jobs in the region.
“It is a strong vote of confidence in the management team and the highly skilled workforce and a clear reflection of the expertise at Deeside. Toyota’s importance to the Welsh economy is recognised by its Anchor Company status and I am pleased the Welsh Government is supporting this latest investment on site.”
