The production shift from Mexico is part of the collective bargaining agreement Ford and the United Auto Workers negotiated in 2011. Ford’s announcement today confirms the company is moving forward with its plans for Ohio Assembly Plant.

Ford is investing $168 million to retool its Ohio Assembly Plant near Cleveland for production of its MY2016 F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks. Mexico is home to production of the current generation of those models. The new-gen trucks will go on sale in spring 2015. Workers at the Ohio Assembly Plant, in Avon Lakes, currently build the E-Series lineup of vans and other commercial vehicles. E-Series cargo and passenger-van production will end later this year while E-Series cutaway vans and stripped chassis will continue to be built in Ohio through most of the decade.
