Ford is taking its Kentucky Truck Plant and making a huge $80 million investment. The Kentucky Truck Plant is responsible for the production of the F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 versions of the beloved Super duty. With Ford making this hefty investment, a total of 350 jobs will be added to the factory.
Other helpful contributions this $80 million will make is a possible 15% increase in the annual Super Duty production because of the facility upgrades and other retooling projects Ford is planning on doing with the plant. These upgrades equal approximately 55,000 extra units of production. This could mean some serious profits for the American manufacturer since they make more off of their Super Duty production than they do off their #1 truck, the Ford F-150.
The $80 million worth of upgrades to the Kentucky Truck Plant will definitely help seal its fate as the one of the top-selling manufacturers when it comes to pickups.
