Ford Motor Company officials- along with the UAW- and local and state leaders- announced a major investment in the Lima Ford Engine Plant- back on Friday.

 

A new Eco-Boost engine designed for F-150 trucks will be built in Lima- and should create close to 300 jobs.

 

John Minor from Jobs Ohio was one of the speakers.

 

Also on hand was Dave Rabe- president of the UAW Local 1219.

 

Workers gathered in the new section of the Lima Ford plant to witness the official announcement.
