Ford Continues to Support U.S. Jobs with $350 Million Investment in Michigan

This May, Ford Motor Company announced it will be investing $350 million in its Livonia Transmission Plant in Michigan. This is the latest in a series of investments in the state of Michigan over the past four months, totaling over $2.25 billion.

The Livonia Transmission Plant currently employs about 1,800 people, but by 2019 this could jump with 800 new jobs being added.

The plant manufactures 6-speed and 10-speed transmissions for various Ford models, including the Ford F-150 and the Mustang. After the investment to update the facility, it will begin building a new fuel-efficient transmission, to be used in front-wheel drive vehicles.

Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of Global Operations expressed his support for the manufacturing industry in the United States:

"We remain committed to American manufacturing and investing in our people and facilities. Even as the industry’s largest employer of hourly workers in the United States and biggest producer of American-made vehicles, we believe it is important to continue investing right here in our home market."
