MS-RT is set to establish a new £4 million vehicle conversion facility at Ford Dagenham.
Ford and MS-RT already enjoy a close collaborative relationship, and with this new investment it provides the opportunity for MS-RT to expand its business while enabling easier access to Ford technical expertise in Dagenham and at the close-by Ford Britain Dunton Campus. The collaboration will accelerate the development of current and future MS-RT vehicles for both UK and international markets.
The new facility is intended to provide work for more than 50 new employees when it comes online in 2022, rising to over 120 new jobs when fully operational. MS-RT confirmed that its existing facility in Pontypool, South Wales will continue to operate with no loss of jobs.
