900 New Jobs Added At Ford

August 5, 2013

Citing increased demand for the F-150 pickup truck, Claycomo’s Ford Manufacturing plant added a third crew (900 new jobs) starting today. The plant is already undergoing a $1.1 billion makeover to get ready for the Transit van.

Manufacturing jobs boost the economy through the multiplier effect. It is estimated that 10 new manufacturing jobs will result in 33 total jobs throughout the economy. This means that today’s increase in Fords workforce will eventually translate in to nearly 3,000 jobs in various industries throughout Kansas City.
