Despite Trump, Ford moves ahead with plans for Mexico plants02.23.17
Reminder: Ford is expanding its Mexican operations.
Ford Mexico CEO Gabriel Lopez said at a company event in Mexico City Thursday that it’s going ahead with plans to expand two of its plants — an engine plant in Chihuahua and a transmission plant in Irapuato.
These plans aren’t new — they were first announced in 2015. But they may seem at odds with all the recent buzz about U.S. automakers bringing jobs back to the U.S., particularly Ford, amid pressure from Trump.
