Ford to boost F-150 production in Dearborn

Posted Friday, Aug 28, 2009, 1:23 pm in Employee News

Ford Motor Co. said today that it is adding third shifts at its Dearborn (Mich.) Truck Plant and at its Kansas City Assembly Plant to meet demand for Ford F-150 pickups and Escape crossovers, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Earlier this month, Ford announced plans to increase third quarter production by 18 percent to a total of 495,000 cars and trucks, but did not previously disclose plans to increase production at Dearborn Truck, the paper said.

The changes at Dearborn Truck will result in the additional production of approximately 10,000 F-150 pickups this year and full-time employment for 2,800 employees who had been working on a two-weeks-on, one-week-off rotating schedule since April, the paper said. The changes at Dearborn Truck are scheduled to begin in late September, the story said. (Detroit Free Press)
