Ford's Bridgend Engine Plant produces 19-millionth engine

Ford's Bridgend Engine Plant (BEP) in Wales has built its 19-millionth engine, 35 years after production began in May 1980.

Earlier this year the Plant also produced its eight-millionth small capacity petrol 'Duratec' engine, since 'job one' at Bridgend in May 1998.

These two significant landmarks were celebrated by Ford Bridgend's 2,200-strong workforce, alongside Ford Glasgow 2014 Athlete Ambassador, Aled Davies, whose father has worked at the plant for 35 years. They were joined by Paralympic athlete Nathan Stephens, whose father, Barrie, is also a BEP employee.

"We have a proud record of high-volume engine production at Bridgend, and we're delighted to celebrate two significant milestones with the team that builds them," said Ian Pearson, Bridgend Engine Plant Manager.
