Flat Rock Assembly Plant Begins Ford Fusion Production
text size: A- A+
To enable the Flat Rock facility, which also builds the Mustang, to assemble Fusions, Ford added 1,400 new jobs and invested $555 million. The move expands Fusion availability by more than 30 percent (100,000 units), up to around 350,000 examples per year.
The Ford Fusion four-door sedan is also being built at the company’s Hermosillo plant in Mexico, where maximum capacity has been reached in 2012. To further boost production of the vehicle, Ford is preparing a third plant located about 20 miles south of its headquarters in Detroit.
“With its bold design and great fuel economy, Fusion has exceeded all of our expectations, with demand outstripping supply,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “Fusion in Flat Rock is a win for all of our stakeholders – including customers, employees and dealers. At the same time, Ford is continuing its massive investment in America by creating another 1,400 jobs.”
