The backbone of Britain

The campaign is entitled ‘The Backbone of Britain’ and is the latest instalment of the campaign which originally began in 1997.

As well as TV, the campaign will appear on radio, newspapers, billboards and social platforms in the UK. Its launch was also scheduled to tie in with the Commercial Vehicle show at the NEC in Birmingham.

In a note to Ford employees, Stuart Rowley, president at Ford of Europe, said: “With the strength and importance of the Ford commercial vehicle (CV) line-up in Britain, this new campaign is a significant investment that highlights the strength of our CV business and 54 years of market leadership in the UK, while also demonstrating our latest vehicles for 2019 – including the new Transit, Ranger pickup and the Transit Custom Plug-in-Hybrid – and highlighting Ford’s contribution to keeping business in Britain on the move.”
