Who makes Ford?
Ford is the flagship brand of one of the world’s largest car makers, the Ford Motor Company. The company established in 1903 is based in Dearborn, Michigan. In addition to cars under the Ford make, the automaker manufactures and sells vehicles under such marques as Lincoln, Troller (Brazil), and FPV (Australia).
Where is Ford made?
There are over 70 Ford manufacturing plants around the world. The two production facilities involved in making Ford Kuga are the Valencia Body & Assembly (Spain) and the Louisville Assembly Plant in Kentucky. The demand for Ford Focus is so high, that this car is manufactured at plants in six countries on four continents: in Azambuja (Portugal), Saarlouis (Germany), St. Petersburg (Russia), Hai Duong (Vietnam), Wayne (Michigan, US), and Buenos Aires (Argentina).
Another popular model, Ford Fusion, is basically built at two plants: the Cologne Body & Assembly in Germany and the Hermosillo Stamping & Assembly in Mexico.
Currently, Ford Mustangs roll off the assembly line of Flat Rock Plant in Michigan. Earlier these cars were made in Dearborn (Michigan), Edison (New Jersey), and Milpitas (California). Ford Escape is made in Louisville (Kentucky), Oakville (Canada), and Hai Duong (Vietnam).
What about Ford Trucks? In addition to the Kentucky Truck Assembly in Louisville (the Super Duty and the Expedition), we can mention Ford Otosan Engine in Turkey (the Cargo truck) and Dearborn Truck (Ford F-150).
In September 2016 Mark Fields, Ford Motor’s CEO, claimed that the company is going to shift all of its US small car production to Mexico “over the next two to three years”.
