Ford Truck

 

AVON LAKE, OH (WOIO) –

Ford is investing $168 million to retool the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, moving production of their medium-duty F-650 and F-750 trucks from Mexico to Ohio.

Hundreds of employees at the plant rallied around their leaders as they unveiled the medium-duty trucks that’ll now be made right here in Northeast Ohio.

They’ll go into production early next year, keeping as many of the plant’s 1600 hourly workers employed as possible.

“Now we’ve got a future. We’ve got something to look forward to because it was uncertain for a long time,” said one shift worker.
