Engine assembly plant planned

Cox Powertrain has signed a lease to take over a 28,000 sq ft production facility near Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport.

The building, currently undergoing renovation, will be the assembly plant for the company’s CXO300 diesel engine, which goes into production in the second quarter of 2019. Cox Powertrain currently employs 70 staff and plans to grow its workforce to meet demand for its new diesel outboard engine, aiming to recruit an additional 78 staff before 2020. Work has started to fit out the new premises and Cox Powertrain expects the facility to be operational later this year.
