SHEFFIELD LAKE, OH (WOIO) –

Production of Ford’s F650/F-750 trucks at the Ohio Assembly Plant, previously built in Mexico, has secured more than 1,000 hourly UAW jobs in northeast Ohio. An announcement was held Wednesday morning at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant in Sheffield Lake

The new F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks will be rolling off the assembly line Wednesday for the first time in the United States.

“Our investment in Ohio Assembly Plant reinforces our commitment to building vehicles in America and to delivering best-in-class commercial trucks,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas. “Working with our partners in the UAW, we found a way to make the costs competitive enough to bring production of a whole new generation of work trucks to Ohio.”
