Ford confirms moving F-650/750 truck production from Mexico to US

Executives from the No.2 US automaker will make a trip to the Avon Lake, Ohio, manufacturing facility to announce officially the production shift there from the plant in Mexico of the next generation medium-duty trucks.

The 1,600 workers will be presented for the first time with the new trucks by Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, with the all-new 2016 F-650 and F-750 production start planned for early next year and sales starting the same spring.

“Shifting production of the 2016 Ford F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks to Ohio Assembly Plant helps secure a solid future for the dedicated workers at this facility,” Hinrichs said in a statement. “Building these trucks in-house will utilize our expertise from our other tough truck and commercial vehicle lines to give our customers a better product at a competitive price.”

Ford and Navistar International have been currently building the two trucks in a joint venture at a plant in Mexico, but now the US automaker decided to bring the work to its own country, investing $168 million to retool the Avon Lake facility for truck production. The plant has been up until now building the E-Series commercial van, which will be discontinued at the end of the year as the Transit van replaces it.
