“As the son and grandson of UAW Ford autoworkers, I could not be more pleased with Ford’s decision to invest $700 million and hire 700 new workers at its Flat Rock assembly plant. Individuals, businesses and communities across the Downriver area will benefit from this investment in Michigan manufacturing. I’m also glad to hear that the plant will begin making electric and autonomous vehicles in the years to come. Investments like this will ensure that Michigan will retain its industrial might and unparalleled workforce, and continue as the world leader in automotive technology.”
