UK engine production falls 10%

UK engine production fell 10.8% in first half of 2019 to 1.3 million units. According to the SMMT, demand from home and international markets was down 16.9% and seven per cent respectively.

Decline in UK engine production mirrors drop in output at car and commercial vehicle plants.

Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said, 'Ten successive months in engine output decline show the impact that Brexit uncertainty is having on the supply chain. Industry needs stability in order to invest and grow, which right now means securing a future relationship with the EU that maintains free and frictionless trade with our key export markets.'
