Dingell Applauds Ford’s Plans to Transform Dearborn Facilities into High-Tech Campus

Washington, DC, April 12, 2016

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement today on Ford’s announcement that it will transform its more than 60-year-old Dearborn facilities into a modern, green and high-tech campus to foster innovation and help drive the company’s transition to an auto and a mobility company.

“Those of us who love Michigan and are committed to its vibrant future were pleased to learn of Ford’s plans to transform its campus in Southeast Michigan. I was even more delighted because it is another example of the company’s strong commitment to Dearborn and Southeast Michigan, my home and my district. 

“The announcement continues to demonstrate Ford’s focus on growth and investment in the U.S., their leadership in developing new technologies right here in Michigan, and their commitment to driving innovation and collaboration in every part of their business. Particularly exciting is their work on the future of mobility, connected vehicle technology and driverless vehicles. This important investment in Michigan employees and the future of the auto industry will help attract emerging businesses and even more people to Michigan – and also ensure that Michigan remains the center of the world’s automotive competitiveness. We will not cede that designation to any state our other country.”
