Owned and managed by Welsh Government, Bro Tathan sits within the Cardiff Airport and Bro Tathan Enterprise Zone and includes a fully operational 1,800m runway.
Bro Tathan will be officially opened by Welsh Economy Minister Ken Skates on 30 September.
Many of the world’s primary aerospace businesses already operate in the local area, including British Airways, Airbus, GE, and Nordam.
The site has also already attracted global car icon Aston Martin to operate there as anchor tenant, with the first pre-production models of its first SUV, the Aston Martin DBX recently rolled out, and full production planned for 2020. The site will be the British marque’s second production facility and ultimately become the company’s ‘Home of Electrification’ when the marque’s planned BEV models enter production.
Global property agent Savills has been commissioned to promote the business park’s unique mix of attractions, which include:
- a strategic employment site offering occupiers quick and serviced occupational solutions, as well as space to grow through a range of design and build opportunities;
- a ready-to-use commercial airfield on site, operated by Cardiff Airport;
- a convenient location, less than five miles from Cardiff Airport with over 50 direct flights and more than 900 international connections.
Savills Director Scott Caldwell, said: “Co-locating a commercial airfield with a business park in such a strong strategic location makes for a very attractive proposition to investors, developers and businesses across the UK and internationally. We share Welsh Government’s great ambitions for the site and are excited to showcase the opportunities it offers.”
Bro Tathan offers multiple airside services to businesses, including the fully operational 1,800m runway.
eCube Solutions, a global player in the aviation services industry, is already benefitting from the location’s unique selling point. eCube initially specialised in ‘end-of-life’ aircraft projects, and has subsequently developed its expertise to deliver complete solutions, ranging from aircraft parking and storage to inventory management and third party logistics, and has recently expanded into Spain.
The company’s Business Director Peter Dunsford said: “For eCube Solutions, Bro Tathan has a unique combination of offerings – access to the South Wales pool of aviation talent, a regulated airfield with permanent Air Traffic Control, a runway which accommodates aircraft of all sizes, easy access to Cardiff, Cardiff airport and the motorway network. Last but not least, we have the backing of the Welsh Government, with the Airfield Development Team and Business Wales supporting our company’s development on a regular basis.”
