The Dearborn Truck Plant is undergoing one of the largest manufacturing transformations yet to prepare for the production of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150.
Ford is also going above and beyond its commitment toward creating jobs by adding 850 new jobs at the plant. As part of the 2011 UAW contract talks, Ford had originally promised to create 12,000 new hourly jobs by 2015. As of today, the automaker has already created 14,000, including 850 new jobs to help build the 2015 F-150.
Part of the Dearborn Truck Plant’s transformation will include replacing legacy manufacturing equipment with the latest in production technology. This marks the plant’s biggest renovation since it opened in 2004 and will ensure the trucks produced there live up to the highest standards of quality.
“As customer anticipation for the all-new F-150 continues to build, today we are bringing on 850 new jobs to help meet the market demand for the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “The new truck sets new standards for the future of tough—right down to how it’s built.”
The 2015 F-150 arrives at Paul Obaugh Ford later this year. See you then!
