Ford Bridgend engine production deal to end early
Production of engines for Jaguar Land Rover at the Ford Engine plant in Bridgend will stop three months earlier than had been expected. Ford has confirmed that its contract to supply JLR with petrol engines will cease in September 2020. Half of the workforce of 1,930 at Bridgend work on that engine. The plant has won investment of £100m to make the next generation of engines, called the Dragon, for Ford cars. At the moment Ford Bridgend makes half a million engines a year for Ford cars and a quarter of a million for JLR. After 2020 the number of engines being made on the site will be just a quarter of present production levels.
