The funds will go toward new equipment and bolstering manufacturing capacity at six plants. The plan is part of a larger move to invest a total of $6.2 billion in the US by 2015. All told, the latest round of upgrades should help create 2,350 new hourly jobs while allowing Ford to keep a further 3,240 hourly jobs in place. The automaker plans to add 12,000 hourly positions at its facilities across the country by 2015.<br /><br />The automaker's Michigan and Flat Rock Assembly Plants will receive $59.4 million and $161 million, respectively, with Flat Rock receiving new machinery and equipment necessary to produce the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/ford/fusion">2013 Ford Fusion</a>. The company's Dearborn Stamping plant will receive the largest investment, with $305 million heading toward plant modernization and new press lines, though the Sterling Axle Plant, Van Dyke and Livonia Transmission facilities will all receive cash for various upgrades.
