U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) applauded Ford Motor Company’s announcement that it will invest $168 million into its Ohio Assembly Plant. The investment will enable Ford to shift production from Mexico and retool its Cleveland area plant to produce the company’s all-new 2016 F-650 and F-750 medium-duty trucks.

Following the announcement, Brown offered the following statement:

“Ford’s announcement is excellent news for Northeast Ohio workers and our state’s proud auto industry,” Brown said. “One in every six cars produced in the United States is made in Ohio due to the quality of our workforce. Bringing production back to the United States from Mexico will strengthen our state’s growing economy and make our local manufacturing base even stronger.”
