DETROIT (AP) — Ford Motor Co. says it's moving all of its U.S. small car production to Mexico— Josh Lederman (@joshledermanAP) September 14, 2016
Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday announced it is moving all of its small car production from the US to Mexico.
"Over the next two to three years, we will have migrated all of our small car production to Mexico and out of the United States," Ford CEO Mark Fields told a meeting in Dearborn, Michigan, where the company is based.
Ford currently makes its Fiesta subcompact in Mexico, but its Focus and C-Max small cars are made in suburban Detroit.
Making them in Mexico would boost company profits because of low wages there.
The company is building a new $1.6 billion assembly plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
It will make small cars there starting in 2018.
