Ford Announces $350 Million Investment in Michigan Transmission Plant

Ford is the largest auto-industry employer of hourly workers in the United States, creating 28,000 U.S. jobs in the last five years alone. Carrying on that tradition, Ford announced last week that it will be upgrading its Livonia Transmission Plant in Michigan with a $350 million investment.

This investment will support 800 hourly jobs, mainly in the manufacturing of a new, more efficient transmission.

Currently, Livonia Transmission Plant employs about 1,800 workers and builds the 6-speed and 10-speed transmissions found in the Ford F-150, Expedition, and more. The new transmission will enhance both performance and fuel-efficiency.

"We remain committed to American manufacturing and investing in our people and facilities," said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of Global Operations. "Even as the industry’s largest employer of hourly workers in the United States and biggest producer of American-made vehicles, we believe it is important to continue investing right here in our home market."
