Ford Motor Co. is pumping $161 million in upgrades at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, which by mid-2013 will be the company’s most flexible plant, capable of building any type of car on any size platform.
The plant will initially handle spillover production of Ford’s Fusion midsize sedan, currently built in Hermosillo, Mexico, and is slated to eventually produce the Taurus and Lincoln MKS.
The upgrades will mean 1,200 new jobs at Flat Rock. Ford expects to begin hiring for those positions during the second quarter of 2013; nearly all will be new to the company.
