The Dragon engine is built in Bridgend. Phase 1 is done. work was going to start on Phase 2 (basically a copy of Phase 1 so we can make twice as many engines.) Phase 2 was put on hold after the Brexit vote. Its now been said Phase 2 will not be coming to Bridgend. Job losses have allready happened. there are very credible rumours that plans are now in place to make the Dragon in Turkey, Its already being made in India, China, Russia, Brazil and Mexico.
In Dagenham we were lucky, the Panther engine was mostly fully installed before the referendum. This has bought us time before we need any more new investment. Its also helpful we in Dagenham make some of the highest quality diesel engines in Europe. Fords want to carry on making engines in Dagenham so we might just be able to limp on though the transition. The Bridgend plant needs investment now. If it doesn't get any within the next 2 years you can bet it will be closed in 10.
What could really hurt Dagenham is Trump. the majority of our Lion Engines get shipped to the US for the F150. extra Tariffs are likely to kill the Lion then we will only have the Panther Engine being made in Dagenham. (ok so we still have the Puma, but that is 20 years old and ending this year. we are about to start stripping out some of the machining lines for the Puma in a couple of weeks.
The point of the above - a very big company is not making any new investments in the UK until they know what Brexit really means. The risks are just not worth it.
