Ford is planning to invest in manufacturing Plants
Ford Motor Co. announced on Friday its plans to invest in Mexico the amount of $2.5 billion dollars in the country´s growing automotive sector.
Ford will invest $1.3 billion to expand its plant in northern Chihuahua state, where it will build two new diesel engines, with another $1.2 billion planned for a transmission plant in central Guanajuato state, the sources said on Tuesday.
Ford announced its last major investment in Mexico in 2008, $3 billion to update its Cuautitlan plant in central Mexico to produce its popular Fiesta model.
Ford is Mexico’s fourth-largest auto exporter, according to official industry figures, selling 108,417 units abroad during the first quarter. The majority headed to the United States. The company also has a factory in the northern state of Sonora, where it produces the Fusion subcompact and the high-end Lincoln MKZ. In recent years foreign automakers have expander their presence in Mexico, due to its cheap labor force, and the proximity to the Unites States.
