Ford shifting truck production from Mexico to Ohio



Published: Fri, March 7, 2014 @ 2:01 p.m.

AVON LAKE, Ohio (AP) — Ford Motor Co. is announcing that it will build its Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks at its assembly plant west of Cleveland.

The automaker says it is shifting production from Mexico to its Avon Lake plant. Production will begin early next year.

The move announced today is part of a pledge Ford made with union leaders in 2011 to shift medium-duty truck production from Mexico.

The company says it's investing $168 million to make the change.

Glad to see Ford relocate production back in the US. Now let's hope they use more American-produced parts in the assembly.

Where are they going to get the workers from? Ohio workers won't work because they get free food stamps from the Liar. There has been a dog groomer ad in the classifieds for 3 months now. They can't drag people out of their homes and make them work. Stay in Mexico.

eevo and YtownParent are both morons to the 10th degree. Stupid statements to make. We have companies investing in Ohio especially the NE corridor which is sorely needed and that's all you got. If you don't like it in the Mahoning Valley pack your bags and don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.

Obama relocated the plant to Ohio so the Mexicans would live closer to work. He shuttlebuses them in by the thousands.
