DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford is hiring 850 workers to help build its new F-150 pickup truck.
The company says 500 of the workers will go to the Dearborn Truck plant, where the F-150 is assembled. Three hundred workers will go to the Dearborn Stamping plant and 50 workers will go to Dearborn Diversified, which makes axles and other parts.
With the added hiring, Ford will have nearly 5,000 hourly workers at the complex near its Dearborn headquarters.
Ford recently completed a $359 million renovation of the Dearborn Truck plant to prepare for its new aluminum-clad F-150, which is scheduled to go on sale by the end of this year.
