The Dearborn automaker will modernize its Dearborn Stamping Plant with four new press lines for its next-generation F-Series trucks, due in 2014. It will retool its capacity-constrain ed Michigan Assembly Plant to increase the output of small cars. In addition, Ford is making significant investments at the Van Dyke Transmission Plant, Livonia Transmission Plant and Sterling Axle Plant. The investments are part of a nationwide $6.2 billion investment promise which includes the addition of 12,000 new hourly jobs Ford made to the United Auto Workers in 2011 when the last contract was signed. In all, Ford's 2013 investments will add 2,350 jobs in southeast Michigan. "We're absolutely on track with all of the commitments," said Jim Tetreault, Ford's vice president of North American manufacturing, in an interview. Ford will revamp facilities to increase flexibility at a time when plant space is at a premium. The automaker's North American plants are running at 114 percent capacity; General Motors Co. and Chrysler Group LLC are also running above 100 percent capacity. Ford's $335 million investment in the Dearborn Stamping Plant will be critical for the automaker's next-generation F-Series trucks, specifically the best-selling F-150, which will need to shed weight to eventually meet federal fuel economy standards. Joe Langley, senior analyst of North American forecasts at Troy-based market intelligence firm LMC Automotive, said Ford's retooling for the next-generation F-150 must be done strategically to avoid shortages. "They can't afford to turn it off for even a month and retool factories," Langley said of Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant, home to three shifts of F-150 production. Ford is also making a substantial investment in another Wayne County plant. The automaker is pumping $161 million in upgrades at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, which by mid-2013 will be the company's most flexible plant, capable of building any type of car on any size platform. The plant will initially handle spillover production of Ford's Fusion midsize sedan, currently built in Hermosillo, Mexico, and is slated to eventually produce the Taurus and Lincoln MKS. The upgrades will mean 1,200 new jobs at Flat Rock. Ford expects to begin hiring for those positions during the second quarter of 2013; nearly all will be new to the company. Ford's Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, which currently produces five cars, will get about $60 million to expand its stamping plant and add two stamping lines, allowing the automaker to insource manufacturing and increase plant production capacity. That plant is running above capacity, but can still achieve greater output through improved in-plant efficiencies. Tetreault said Ford achieved a 3 percent production increase in plant production efficiencies this year through small, in-plant changes. Ford in 2013 will finish investing approximately $85 million at its Sterling Axle Plant, $87 million at its Van Dyke Transmission Plant and $74 million at its Livonia Transmission Plant  (Feb 22, 2013 | post #33)

DAVE PINKERTON WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU KNEW ? GOD'S ACCURACY How lovely to think about the way our Creator God planned everything so carefully and perfectly, everything with a plan. As His highest creation, "we are fearfully and wonderfully made." God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. For example, the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; Those of the canary in 14 days; Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days. The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; Those of the mallard in 35 days. The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven). God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. Each watermelon has an even number of strips on the rind. Each orange has an even number of segments. Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather. All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks. The Lord specified thirtyfold, sixtyfold, and a hundredfold --all even numbers. God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day, so that Linneus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed! Thus the Lord in His wonderful grace can arrange the life that is entrusted to His care in such a way that it will carry out His purposes and plans, and will be fragrant with His presence. Only the God-planned life is successful.  (Jan 31, 2013 | post #144)

Four different General Motors vehicles from the 2012 model year are being recalled over a potential airbag issue. The driver's side airbag "SHORTING BAR" in the 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic might make contact with the airbag terminals, even during a crash. If so, the airbag won't deploy when it should, possibly increasing injury to the driver. The recall is expected to begin on February 13 for the 3,896 units that might be affected. GM will notify owners who can then take their vehicles to dealers to have the airbag coil replaced. A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below has more info.  (Jan 31, 2013 | post #134)
