LONDON -- Jaguar plans to announce cutbacks at all three of its plants in England as the Ford Motor Co. unit struggles to become profitable.
Jaguar spokesman Don Hume said there would be production cutbacks at Jaguar's factories at Browns Lane, Castle Bromwich and Halewood, England. Hume said Jaguar officials met with union representatives on Wednesday, Aug. 18, to discuss the move.
Jaguar largely was responsible for the $362 million loss reported by Ford's Premier Automotive Group in the second quarter.
Jaguar, which relies heavily on sales in the United States, has been hit hard by the weak dollar. Strong sales of Jaguar's new diesel-engine-powered X-Type in Europe have offset some of the problems across the Atlantic.
