Ford plans to add 6,200 jobs in Ohio, Michigan and Missouri
DETROIT (AP) – Ford will add 6,200 factory jobs in Michigan, Missouri and Ohio as it prepares to build more electric vehicles and roll out two redesigned combustion-engine models.
The company says it will invest $3.7 billion in the three states, and it will convert about 3,000 temporary workers to full-time status with benefits.
A factory near Cleveland will be expanded so it can build an unidentified new electric commercial vehicle, with 1,800 new jobs.
A plant in Claycomo, Missouri, near Kansas City, that makes big electric and combustion-engine vans will get a third shift of 1,100 workers.
And in Michigan, the company will add 2,000 jobs at three assembly plants as well as another 1,200 at other facilities.
