60 new jobs at Llanelli auto parts firm Gestamp Tallent

Sixty jobs are being created with a £10m investment in an auto components plant in Carmarthenshire.

A new hot metal stamping press at Gestamp Tallent's Llanelli factory is supplying parts to Jaguar Land Rover for the next five years.

The press produces stronger and lighter components than those produced by a traditional cold metal pressing process.

The Welsh government is providing support to the plant which employs 400.

The factory faced closure about five years years ago. It was acquired by Gestamp in 2011.
