Ford will shut the UK engine plant

Ford Motor Company today has confirmed that they would shut its engine plant in Bridgend, Wales by September 2020. The US car manufacturer said that the proposal supported its strategy of creating a more efficient and focused business in Europe. The Unite union, which first brought the plans to light, said the closure would cost 1,500 jobs and called on the car manufacturer to rethink the closure. The plant makes the Dragon petrol engine for a variety of Ford vehicles. The automaker said it would continue to produce engines at its Dagenham plant and keep its technical centre in Dunton, both in southeast England. The company would help laid-off staff find new work


"Ford bosses should be rebalancing global engine production from Mexico and India to Bridgend. There is a global yearly market of around 500,000 for the Dragon engine and we demand our fair share of that," said by Unite's Assistant General Secretary.
