Like all other UK based car factories, Ford had to close down its two engine factories here in the UK due the coronavirus, it has one in Dagenham and another in Bridgend, South Wales. Like Vauxhall, Ford is reopening both of these factories next week on Monday, the 18th May.

The factory will be providing all staff with face masks and will be checking their temperature once they enter the building. Ford does also have another engine factory in Valencia, which is also due to open next week.
