21 December 2017 #SMMT News #UK Manufacturing
  • British engine manufacturing grows 11.4% in November to 279,532 units.
  • Both domestic and export demand up, by 20.8% and 4.0% respectively.
  • Year-to-date more than 2.5 million engines have rolled off UK production lines.

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,

2017 has been a very robust year for UK engine manufacturing, with huge investments into new facilities and engine models delivering impressive dividends both at home and overseas. To attract future investment and ensure continued global success, government must safeguard the business conditions we currently enjoy and provide clarity on our future trading relationships with the EU and other key markets.
