Ford Creates 800 New Jobs

Just because the US no longer gets to enjoy new Ford Rangers, doesn't mean Ford is going to deprive the rest of the world of that privilege. Americans have made their final decision on big Ford trucks over compacts, but production is in high demand in place like South Africa, where the Ford Motor Co. is having to increase production and even expand manufacturing plants to make it so. “The customers have spoken, and they want more of the quality, cost and capability offered by our Ranger pickup trucks,” Jeff Nemeth, President and CEO of Ford Motors in South Africa, told media. “In order to meet continued strong demand in South Africa and abroad, we are adding shifts to our operations, creating jobs and confirming our commitment to South Africa. We invested significantly to transform our operations, and it is our strong belief that these jobs have the power to transform people’s lives as well."
