Ford Motor Company has recently announced that they have invested $80 million in their Kentucky Truck Plant in order to increase production to meet the growing demand for their Super Duty pickup trucks. The new investment and expansion in their truck plan will add 350 new jobs to the facility. The $80 million investment will cover facility upgrades, retooling, and increasing capacity to meet growing demand.
“Customer demand for F-Series Super Duty trucks is growing substantially, and F-Series overall is America’s best-selling truck for 37 years running,” explains Ford president of The Americas, Joe Hinrichs. “Building on more than 100 years of manufacturing in Kentucky, we are proud to expand our profitable growth in the region as a result of our leadership in trucks and SUVS.”
Ford’s Kentucky Plant works efficiently to produce the F-250, F-450, F-550 Super Duty pickups as well as the popular ford Expedition SUV and the Lincoln Navigation. With the new facility upgrades and Ford’s plant investment, production will substantially increase in 2014 leading to the 5-millionth Ford F-Series Super Duty truck to be built!
Sanderson Ford knows the F-Series is quite popular, flying out of the dealership all year. We look forward to the production of more trucks and fully support the upgrade to Ford’s Kansas City facilities. For questions about the F-Series line or the new Ford investment, swing by Sanderson Ford today.
