United Auto Workers (UAW) Document Shows Plan for New Product, $900 Million Investment at Ford Ohio Assembly Plant (OHAP)

11/01/2019 – On Friday, November 1, the UAW released a document titled "UAW Ford Contract Summary: Hourly Workers." Page 7 of that document is labeled "Product and Investment," and lists eight assembly operations that are slated for new investments. Ohio Assembly Plant is one of them, and the planned new investment is $900 million. And included in the description of the investment is "New product to be added in 2023."

The City of Avon Lake is overjoyed at this news. This would certainly be among the largest investments, and the largest job creations that Avon Lake has ever seen. While Avon Lake acknowledges that there is a myriad of factors in Ford's decision to invest in the Ohio Assembly Plant, the City would like to think that the company's relationship with Avon Lake was at least a small consideration.
