The Aston Martin Company has had quite a few homes over the years. There are also a small number of other facilities that have been associated with certain aspects of the company other than direct production. Here is a list of factories and their role in the history of the marque.


Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The two had joined forces as Bamford & Martin the previous year to sell cars made by Singer from premises in Callow Street, London. Martin raced specials at the Aston Hill near Aston Clinton, and the pair decided to make their own vehicles.


1913 - Bamford and Martin Limited founded in London... 1964 - DB5 appears with James Bond in Goldfinger... 2005 - V8 Vantage goes into production.
