Ford Motor Company
Opened as the world’s largest integrated factory back in 1928, Ford Motor Company’s Rouge Complex continues to turn raw materials into running vehicles within a single facility. Today, the Rouge is using more than 500 robots to transform the F-150 pickup and its innovative aluminum body. Ford recently announced plans to invest $700 million to expand their Flat Rock Assembly Plant and create a Manufacturing Innovation Center, due for completion in 2020. “We are excited that Ford has chosen Michigan as its innovation home for their fully electric and autonomous hybrid vehicles,” said Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
