It’s always a good sign when a company is adding jobs. It almost always means it is growing and having a lot of success. In the past couple of years, Ford has been adding new jobs left and right. The most recent Ford job expansion comes at the Dearborn Truck facility.
Ford will add 850 new jobs at the Rouge Center to expand production of the all-new 2015 Ford F-150. The jobs will be divided among the three facilities at the center. 500 will go to the Dearborn Truck facility, 300 for the Dearborn Stamping plant, and more than 50 at Dearborn Diversified.
“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, in a statement. “The new truck sets new standards for the future of tough – right down to how it’s built.”
Just this year alone, Ford has added more than 3,000 hourly jobs to Ford facilities across the country. And, since 2011, Ford has created more than 14,000 jobs, which has exceeded its initial goal of creating 12,000 hourly jobs in the United States by 2015.
Here at Hassett Automotive, we love hearing about Ford’s job expansions and can’t wait to get the 2015 Ford F-150 built by hard-working Ford employees.
