Ford Dagenham is a major car making factory located in Dagenham, London, operated by the Ford of Britain on behalf of the Ford Motor Company. The factory opened in 1931 and has produced 10,980,368 cars and more than 39,000,000 engines in its history. It covers around 475 acres that is the size of around 240 football pitches.
In 2008, the plant produced around 1,050,000 engines and was the largest producer of Ford diesel engines globally. Employment at the plant peaked at around 40,000 workers in 1953.
Following the change to only building engines it now employs around 2,000 people.
On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors of Furze Infants and Warren Junior School I would like to welcome you to our federation. We are two schools working together under one Governing Body for the benefit of our pupils and the success of the community we live in.
We believe our schools gain from working collaboratively, more importantly, we strive to provide a seamless transition for our pupils between the two schools.
Mr. G. Wilder OBE
