Ford adds 350 at Louisville Truck Plant

Good news for Kentucky! Ford recently announced that they’ll be adding 350 new jobs at Louisville’s Truck Plant. The company is investing in “facility upgrades, retooling and increased capacity.”

Ford plans to make 55,000 more trucks annually, a 15 percent increase.

“It’s a good testament to the underlying growth in the U.S. economy; trucks are all about doing work,” Hinrichs said, citing increases in home building and construction. “We’re seeing that demand, and then it comes home in the great commonwealth of Kentucky, where we need to build more of these things.”

Ford has already filled the new positions from a pool of 10,000 applications that were previously on file. All new workers should be on the job by April 1.
