Ford to invest $350 million, add 800 jobs in Livonia plant

Staff Writer |
Ford said it is investing $350 million in its Livonia Transmission Plant to expand its lineup of transmissions and will add 800 new jobs at the plant.

The investment will support the production of a new transmission for front-wheel-drive vehicles.

Ford said it expects to begin adding jobs at the end of this year, with the majority coming next year and in 2019. Most of the jobs will be filled by workers at other plants.

The announcement follows Ford's decision earlier this week to trim its salaried workforce globally by 1,400 positions.
