1,000 New Employees Start Work in Kansas City

1,000 New Employees Start Work in Kansas City
ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich - As 1,000 New Employees Start Work in Kansas City, Ford Motor Company begins production for the all-new 2015 Ford Transit. The Transit is set to go on sale this summer and the Kansas City Assembly Plant is going to get the ball rolling with some new employee additions!

This year alone, Ford has created more than 5,000 new jobs; 3,300 of which are salaried positions. Ford hasn't had this large of a hiring initiative since 2000. The company was able to build more than 14,000 Ford jobs in North America over the past two years.

The Transit, which eventually will replace the Ford E-Series, has been the leading choice for decades among many business owners. The Transit is a tough, durable cargo vehicle that brings drivers much flexibility and capability.

The all-new Transit is going to offer the customer a wide range of roof heights, wheelbases and body lengths for maximum flexibility, and a full suite of onboard features and technologies that were made with business owners in mind.  Cargo volume in the Transit will range from 250 to 500 cubic feet, more than twice the volume of today's E-Series. The Ford Transit is also expected to average 25 percent better fuel efficiency and haul at least 300 more pounds than the E-Series we have today.

Governor Jay Nixon is absolutely thrilled with the addition jobs Ford has brought to Missouri, rebuilding their auto sector. He looks forward to this next-generation vehicle being produced in Missouri and thanks Ford for making an investment in the state and the exceptional Missouri workers.

The 1,000 New Employees Start Work in Kansas City on the 2015 Transit and an additional 175 will join them come March. Ford is ready to knock out one of the 16 vehicles in the US -23 globally- that will debut this year!
