  Visit to Ford Motor Company 

This is a rare opportunity to visit one of the most renowned manufacturing sites in the UK.

Ford Dagenham is a major automotive factory operated by the Ford of Britain subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. The plant opened in 1931 and has produced 10,980,368 cars and over 37,000,000 engines in its history.

Today it remains one of the largest manufacturers of engines in the world and is a key part in the company’s  global distribution chain.

During the tour you will get to see the manufacturing process as well as the logistics side of the operation and have plenty of chances to discuss how Ford implement their safety procedures in such a varied work environment.  

Numbers are limited so members will be chosen at random.
