USA – Ford’s Dearborn plant has produced more than 2.6 million F-150 trucks since it opened in May 2004. Upholding the company’s blueprint for sustainability through its living roof and recycling programs, the facility has recycled more than 20 million pounds of cardboard, paper, plastic and wood since its opening.
The plant now has more than 3,600 employees on a three-crew operating pattern, producing 1,200 F-150 trucks daily. Later this year, production of the all-new 2015 F-150 will begin. This summer, the body shop will undergo a complete renovation in preparation to build the new truck, which will feature an aluminium body.
