Ford to Add 800 Manufacturing Jobs in Michigan

Perhaps what inspires so many Charlotte drivers to choose Ford is the automaker's long history with our state. Ford remains one of the largest employers for manufacturing jobs in the United States, especially in Michigan.

Starting later this year, Ford will begin adding jobs to support production of a new, efficient transmission at the Livonia Transmission Plant. By 2019, Ford plans to create or maintain 800 hourly positions at that facility.

Upgrading the facility to produce the new transmission will take a $350 million investment, which makes a total of $2.25 billion that Ford has invested in Michigan in just the last four months.

"Today’s announcement of investment at the Livonia Transmission Plant is further evidence of the benefits of collective bargaining and the ongoing commitment of UAW-Ford to lead the way in creating and maintaining automotive manufacturing jobs in America. The addition of these 800 jobs will add job security for the plant’s hardworking men and women, and support for the surrounding community."
