We are excited to announce that plans are in place for us to extend our premises and purchase a range of new machinery as we move to meet the ever-growing global demand for our products.
The expansion plans will see us extend our existing factory building and renovate an adjacent building to provide additional manufacturing space and a distribution centre for online sales. It will also create six new jobs and safeguard six existing jobs.
The move is being supported by a significant investment from the Welsh Government’s Wales Economic Growth fund which was established to support companies like Corgi to expand, create new jobs and increase exports while continuing to support business growth across Wales.
Our Director Chris Jones, said: “We have continued to invest in the site, acquiring new machinery to meet new orders and we are now at total capacity. Support from the Welsh Government’s Economic Growth Fund is vital for this extension to go ahead and its means we will be well placed to take advantage of a number of opportunities in the UK, the Far East and the USA”.
Wales’ Economy Minister Edwina Hart, who recently visited the Corgi factory, said: “Corgi is a made-in-Wales iconic brand and I am delighted to see it is expanding its operations and increasing its exports around the world. I am also pleased Corgi is benefiting from our international trade support programmes to grow its existing business in countries like Japan and make inroads into new markets like Korea”.
