Ford Adding 1,200 Workers At Detroit Plant

Posted Sep 11, 2012

Ford will be adding 1,200 workers to a Detroit factory to build the Ford Fusion.  This proves how strong of a seller that the Ford Fusion is.  Ford Americas President Mark Fields told workers at a plant in Flat Rock that the Fusion’s market segment is growing two times faster than the rest of the U.S. auto industry.

The new Ford Fusion is going for sale this fall.  Up until now, Ford has been building the Ford Fusions in Mexico.  Since labor contracts have lowered the costs in the U.S., the company added production to the U.S.  Ford is hiring 1,200 new workers starting this spring and is investing $555 million in new equipment at the plant.  The Ford Mustang is also built at the Flat Rock plant.
