FoMoCo announced today that it is launching a new era at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, complete with a new name, 1,200 additional hourly jobs coming next year and plans to produce the 2013 Ford Fusion.

“The new Flat Rock Assembly Plant symbolizes the growth driven by our One Ford plan,” said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. “Ford continues investing in people, products and plants to deliver the head-turning, fuel-efficient, fun-to-drive vehicles people really want, including the all-new Fusion.”
Previously known as AutoAlliance International, Flat Rock Assembly is now under the full control of Ford. The plant continues to be owned by a joint venture that is split 50/50 between Ford and Mazda.
Following the end of Mazda6 production last month, the plant will now produce the Mustang before adding Fusion next year.
