Ford shifting truck production from Mexico to Ohio

AVON LAKE, Ohio — Ford Motor Co. announced it will build its Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks at its assembly plant west of Cleveland.

The automaker says it is shifting production from Mexico to its Avon Lake plant. Production will begin early next year.

The move announced Friday is part of a pledge Ford made with union leaders in 2011 to shift medium-duty truck production from Mexico.

The company says it’s investing $168 million to make the change.
