Ford recruiting 250 for low carbon diesel engine at Dagenham 05 September 2014
Ford is recruiting 250 employees as production operators for the new diesel engine production line being installed at its Dagenham engine plant.
The next-generation, low-CO2, 2.0-litre diesel engine family – designed at Ford Dagenham and the Ford Dunton Technical Centre – has cost Ford more than £380 million in development, with support from the UK government's Regional Growth Fund.
The first engine will be produced at Dagenham towards the end of next year (2015) with production capacity reaching 350,000 units per annum, and is due for installation in Ford vehicles from 2016.
This is part of a £1.5 billion investment by Ford in low-carbon and environmentally friendly engine and vehicle technology over five years.
"This recruitment programme underlines Ford's commitment to the UK and signals the final step towards the production of an all-new, state-of-the-art, low carbon diesel engine that has been designed, developed and manufactured by Ford in the UK," declares Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director.
"The Regional Growth Fund is playing a pivotal role in supporting businesses such as Ford to grow and create long-term, highly skilled jobs," comments Minister for Universities, Science and Cities, Greg Clark.
"Round six of the Regional Growth Fund is open for bids until 30 September – I urge businesses to consider how it could help them increase their workforce," he adds.
