New meaning to "Overseas Operations"
In today's St. Paul Pioneer Press, we learn that Ford will definitely close its plant in St. Paul next year in order to "better leverage our global platforms," according to Ford's Mark Fields. "At this time, the Twin Cities Assembly Plant does not fit into our global manufacturing strategy."
According to the newspaper, Fields "overseas all North American and South American operations" for Ford.
