Ford reports increase in UK exports over 2010

Exports from Ford’s UK-based engine and parts manufacturing operations have grown by more than a third over the last 12 months to keep up with increasing demand in Russia, Australia and the Far East.

Ford Dagenham’s Export Distribution Centre (EDC) ships a variety of components manufactured at plants in the UK, including Ford Dagenham’s engine plant and Ford Dagenham’s Stamping and Tooling Operations (DSTO). 

The mixed volume of vehicle components transported overseas comprises approximately 30 per cent vehicle panels, 30 per cent engines and 40 per cent trim-metal used in applications such as Ford’s chrome window surrounds.

In addition, engines are shipped through Ford Component Sales to both Ford and non-Ford dealers in the UK.
