While the American political left continues their ridiculous resistance to the elected leader of the United States, major corporations are lining up to help make America great again.
One of those companies is Ford, innovator of the automobile industry and producer of some of American history’s most iconic cars. As you may recall, Ford was one of the first major corporations to understand the full gravity of having a business mogul in the Oval Office, and quickly announced that they would be reinvesting in American workers building American cars in America. Now, as it turns out, Ford is going all-in with the revamping of three manufacturing facilities in Michigan.
“Ford Motor Co. will invest $1.2 billion in three Michigan facilities to prepare for production of the all-new Ford Ranger and Bronco, and to support the company’s expansion into mobility.
“The company said Tuesday it will invest $850 million to retool its Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne for truck and SUV production; $150 million in its Romeo Engine Plant to expand capacity for several vehicles; and $200 million to build a data center at the company’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant. Ford announced in January the Flat Rock facility also would see a $700 million investment and 700 new jobs to support the production of electrified and autonomous vehicles.
“The total investment represents an additional $350 million above those negotiated as part of the 2015 United Auto Workers contract. Plans for the data center at Flat Rock are new; the company added $150 million to its budget for Michigan Assembly upgrades. The $150 million for the Romeo plant upgrades were previously outlined in the UAW contract. According to the contract, the automaker will invest at least $9 billion in U.S. facilities through 2019.
“The investments announced Tuesday are expected to add or retain 130 jobs at the Romeo Engine plant; Ford did not offer employment estimates for Michigan Assembly or Flat Rock.”
This newfound confidence in the American worker and they product that they can produce is a breath of fresh air after a disastrous 8 years of Barack Obama’s leadership in which U.S. jobs were being shipped overseas at alarming rates. Donald Trump’s presidency is an obvious economic force that will, by all indications, put a great deal of Americans back to work.
