Michigan Assembly Plant

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michigan Assembly Plant, formerly known as Michigan Truck Plant, is a Ford Motor Company assembly plant in Wayne, Michigan. The plant employs approximately 2800 hourly employees and 200 salary employees (May 2020), [1] comprises three main buildings with 5,000,000 sq ft (460,000 m2) of factory floor space and is located adjacent to Wayne Stamping & Assembly. The plant was built in 1957 and has seen many expansions and upgrades. The plant manufactured the third generation, North American Ford Focus from December 14, 2010 until May 4th, 2018.[2][3]

History

The plant opened in 1957, as the Michigan Station Wagon Plant producing Mercury station wagons. In 1964 the plant was re-tooled to produce pickup trucks, producing the first F-100. In 1965 the 100,000th truck rolled off the line. In 1968 two large additions were made to the plant that increased overall capacity. The plant was expanded again in 1974, 1991 and 1996. In 1997 the plant began producing SUV's, and in 2010 was re-tooled again to produce the Focus. By late 2010, Ford completed a $550 million renovation, enabling the plant to change production between various models without significant downtime and to produce gas-powered cars as well as battery electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid variations. The renovation also included a 500-kilowatt solar panel system and ten electric vehicle charging stations for recharging electric part-transport trucks running between adjacent facilities.[4] Ford plans to reintroduce the Ford Ranger pickup in the North American market by the 2019 model year with the Bronco to follow by 2020, and they will be produced at the Wayne plant.[5] The plant currently has 2.8 million square feet of floor space and a capacity of 5,300 units per week.
