Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “February’s 11.1% growth in British engine production was the sector’s biggest in six months, led by a sharp rise in output for the domestic market. This was in contrast to a moderate fall in units built for export, which still accounts for more than half of overall production. We anticipate a positive year for engine manufacturing, as new facilities continue to ramp up volumes.”
