DETROIT (AP) — A person briefed on the matter says Ford is moving production of a popular small engine from Spain to a plant near Cleveland.
The person says that on Thursday, Ford will announce a $200 million investment at its factory in Brook Park, Ohio. The plant will produce the 2-Liter "EcoBoost" engine that's now built in Valencia, Spain.
The person didn't want to be identified because the official announcement hasn't been made. The move will add about 450 jobs at the Ohio plant. The factory currently has about 1,300 workers making two six-cylinder engines.
EcoBoost engines have turbochargers, which give them more power when needed. The engines are becoming popular because they get better gas mileage than larger motors.
