Ford and Cardiff University have been given an award for working together to create significant cost savings through innovation.
The Ford Bridgend Engine Plant teamed up with the Schools of Engineering and Computer Sciences and Informatics in order to improve technological and operational efficiency to save time and money.
“The collaboration has allowed the company to take a more strategic look at solving business issues rather than take a day-to-day, ‘fire-fighting’ approach, which has resulted in long-term gains financially, environmentally and operationally,” said Martin Everitt, Bridgend plant manager.
“Promoting these innovations across Ford globally will deliver further significant savings to the business, as well as promoting the work of the Bridgend plant.”
Creating these savings is helping Ford to generate more funding to invest in future development of its award-winning cars. Fords are some of the most reliable cars on the market, so leasing for your business is never a bad decision.
And, as leasing is so much more cost-effective than buying company cars, you can go for a top of the range model that will ensure your business looks totally professional.
The Ford Mondeo Diesel Estate 2.0 TDCi 140 Zetec Business Edition 5dr is the perfect vehicle for the consummate professional. With a fuel efficiency potential of up to 57.7mpg, a day on the road driving from meeting to meeting is more cost effective than in many other vehicles. Indeed, the CO2 emissions for this model are just 120g/km.
For all this, business leasing over a 48 month period is just £232.70 per month.
Or pay even less for the award-winning Ford Focus. With EC combined fuel efficiency of 76.4 mpg, and EC Urban fuel economy of 65.7 mpg, you should opt for the Ford Focus Diesel Hatchback 1.6 TDCi Edge ECOnetic 5dr.
You can drive this outstanding vehicle for just £202.10 per month, a low cost option for businesses concerned about their carbon footprint. Eco-friendliness does not impact speed or agility in this model, as it can get up from 0 to 62mph in just 11.8 seconds, despite CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.
