Ford Closes UK Plant Amid Brexit Chaos
Ford Closes UK Plant Amid Brexit Chaos

Ford has announced plans to close an engine plant in Wales, dealing yet another blow to a UK industry that is being ravaged by weak car sales and uncertainty over Brexit.

The US automaker said it would shutter its plant in Bridgend by September 2020, when a contract to supply engines to Jaguar Land Rover ends.

Some 1,700 people work at the factory.

Ford said Brexit did not influence its decision.
