The job additions at Buffalo Stamping Plant are a combination of new workers, transfers and employees coming back from temporary leave. Ford is more than three-fourths of the way to its goal of creating 12,000 hourly jobs in the United States by 2015 to support new products and investment. The company also is investing $16 billion in its U.S. product development and manufacturing operations – including $6.2 billion for plant-specific investments. Additionally, Ford announced earlier this year its plans to hire 2,200 salaried workers in the United States in 2013 to fill jobs in such key areas as product development, manufacturing and IT."Ford's investment of $150 million in its Hamburg facility is proof positive of western New York's status as a leading hub of advanced manufacturing," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "With this major investment, Ford is cementing its competitiveness in the region and keeping hundreds of well-paying jobs in western New York. As we work to attract and retain businesses here in upstate New York, the state is committed to providing the support needed to drive our economy and keep it moving forward."
