Mayor Fischer says Ford continues to invest in Louisville becaus

Ford announced Tuesday that it is investing $900 million into its Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville for upgrades and that it will import future Ford Focus models from China.

Just two years about Ford announced a $1.3 billion investment. Americans are addicted to trucks and SUVs, so it is reasonable to build them on American soil where majority will be sold. Focus models were previously manufactured in a MI assembly plant, but the plant will discontinue Focus models in mid-2018 to build Ranger truck and Bronco SUV models instead.

The auto maker said the 1,000 new positions will be centered on building Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators, which are expected to be exported to more than 55 markets worldwide after being completed.

But the Romanian won five consecutive games and then saved match point to take it to a decider, which she finished off easily . But Ostapenko turned on the style in the decider, edging ahead at 4-3 with the 15th break of the match before holding for 5-3.

The Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator will be exported to more than 55 markets globally, including plans to export the Navigator to China. "This $900 million investment demonstrates that Ford is being successful in Kentucky and that Kentucky is attentive to the needs of business". This makes sense when you think about it on a global scale.

"I love the fact that the Navigators and Expeditions continue to be made here, but then the export advantage that comes from that is really good for our local economy as well", Fischer said. They see a good workforce here. "We have over 13,500 employees that work for the Ford Motor Company here in Louisville". The Kentucky plant will add 1,000 hourly jobs to its current workforce of over 7,000.
