Ford is Considering Relocating Production House because of Brexit
Automaker Ford is considering moving production activities in the UK elsewhere as a result of the Brexit. That is what the American group has announced in a telephone conversation with British Prime Minister Theresa May, reports Reuters.
Ford produces car engines in two factories in the United Kingdom. The company is counting on extra costs of up to 1 billion euros if the country leaves the European Union without a departure scheme, the Americans said earlier.
The risk of such a so-called no-deal Brexit is increasing as the deadline for the departure of the British approaches and the House of Commons still has not agreed to a divorce agreement.
Several automakers already warned about the consequences of a chaotic Brexit.
In October, Toyota announced that it feared significant logistical problems for its British factories. Nissan recently decided not to make a new model of the X-trail in the British Sunderland.
Although the Japanese stated that this had nothing to do with the Brexit, the company complained about the continuing uncertainty as a result of the political struggles.
