Committed to Kansas City
The additional jobs at Kansas City Assembly Plant come as Ford continues to retool and expand the facility through a $1.1 billion investment for Transit production. When Transit production begins nearly 275 suppliers nationally and six suppliers locally will grow their businesses through job creation and manufacturing investment.
"With Ford hiring the 1,000th worker to work on the Transit, it's clear that our efforts to rebuild Missouri's auto sector continue to pay real dividends for Missouri families in the Kansas City region and across our state," said Gov. Jay Nixon. "As governor, I greatly appreciate Ford's strong and growing investment in our state and the outstanding workers who will build this next-generation vehicle right here in Missouri."
