Ford executives at the North American International Auto Show said the company is looking to hire 7,000 workers in the United States.
“It’s highly important for our company and the communities we serve to be able to add jobs. It’s a reflection clearly that we are on the way back and that our company is well positioned,” said Ford Chairman, Bill Ford.
Ford is planning to add 750 salaried jobs and 4,000 manufacturing jobs this year and another 2,500 manufacturing jobs for 2012. The move will help meet demand for the next generation Focus and other vehicles based on the Focus’ Global C1 architecture.
