The assembly plant in Oakville, Canada, has started pricing the global 2015 Ford Edge. The new version of the SUV will be shipped to more than 100 countries as Ford continues to develop its global strategy. Most 2015 Ford models were developed with this mantra in mind, instead of having specific vehicles for certain countries or regions.
Last year, the Oakville Assembly plant got a huge revamp thanks to a $700 million investment. The plant is now ready to assemble all 2015 Ford Edges.
The assembly plant revamp added more than 250 new robots and new technology to improve efficiency. Ford’s focus on quality led to the development of new techniques to reduce cabin noise, align parts better, and give paint s sleeker finish.
Since 2008, global demand for sport utility vehicles is up by 88% and now account for almost 20% of the automotive market. Ford is staying ahead of these demand trends by investing heavily in new equipment and hiring new workers. The Oakville plant alone hired over 1,400 employees in the last year, in addition of being recognized for its environmental efforts.
