British engineering company Cox Powertrain has signed a lease to take on a 28,000sqft production facility near Shoreham (Brighton City) Airport.

The building will be the assembly plant for Cox Powertrain’s CXO300 diesel outboard engine which goes into production in 2019.

“We are building the highest power density diesel outboard engine ever developed and this facility will use modern automated manufacturing techniques to ensure highly efficient deliver,” said CEO Tim Routsis. “Our new assembly plant is a major step in the company’s journey to become a world-leading engineering innovator.”

The UK engineer currently employs 70 staff and plans to grow its workforce to meet the demand for its diesel engine, aiming to recruit an additional 78 staff before 2020.

Work has started to fit out the new premises and the facility is due to be operational later this year.
