- UK engine production remains steady in July, increasing by a modest 1.0%.
- Exports growth outweighs domestic decline, up 13.0% in the month and 14.5% year-to-date.
- Almost 1.7 million engines built in the UK in first seven months of the year.
Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,
It’s good to see previous significant investment into British engine technology and facilities continue to pay dividends, with strong and growing global demand for our high quality, cutting-edge products. To ensure future growth, it is critical we maintain the free and frictionless trade we currently enjoy with the EU and other key international markets.
