Fiesta! Fiesta! Ford Fiesta 2011 to begin production in Mexico plant
Ford has chosen Cuatitlan Izcalli, Estado de Mexico (State of Mexico - on the outskirts of Mexico City) as the location to produce its new Ford Fiesta 2011. The plant will create over 2,300 direct jobs and 6,000 indirect jobs. Some of the new Ford plant employees have undergone an application process that has lasted over a year.
The plant was previously operational, but was shut down and revamped in preparation for the new Ford launch. Almost 70% of the parts used in the new Ford Fiesta will be purchased through local suppliers, which is a great boon for the local economy. This means Ford will purchase over $6 billion USD of parts a year in Mexico!!!
