DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford’s Oakville assembly plant in Ontario will be operating an extra week this summer in response to soaring demand for the Edge.
The company says the Ford Edge – a mid-sized sport utility vehicle built in Oakville – had record US sales last month.
Canadian sales of the Edge were also strong in May after hitting a record in April.
Ford expects to make an additional 40,000 vehicles in total as a result of the extra week of work.
It’s the third year in a row that Ford has shortened summer breaks to meet demand for its vehicles.
