Investment will create 300 jobs to support production of the Lincoln MKC.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Ford Motor Co. is investing $129 million to manufacture the Lincoln MKC at its Louisville Assembly plant.
The investment will create 300 jobs.
Production of Lincoln’s newest vehicle began in May. MKC is the second of four Lincoln vehicles being introduced by 2016, and will go on sale in China, along with the MKZ sedan, when the brand debuts there later this year.
“Lincoln MKC is an important part of Lincoln as it attracts a new luxury customer,” said Daryl Sykes, plant manager, Louisville Assembly Plant.
The automaker says the investment will also support more than 110 suppliers across the US.
