When you think about your truck being “built Ford tough,” you naturally might wonder where that building gets done. When it comes to the 2015 Ford F150, the answer for many of these vehicles will be the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant, part of the Ford Rouge Center in Michigan. And this year, the remarkable Ford Dearborn Truck Plant celebrates its ten year anniversary by preparing to build one of the toughest trucks yet from the Ford company.
The Ford Dearborn Truck Plant was and still is a groundbreaking plant for truck production. Featuring a “living roof,” the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant is dedicated to sustainability and minimizing any environmental effects from its truck production. The living roof is an impressive 10.4 acres, and reduces energy use while simultaneously removing carbon dioxide from the air. The Ford Dearborn Truck Plant continues its sustainability efforts with a facility designed to use natural lighting and ventilation as much as possible, as well as using water-based primer and base coats to avoid volatile emissions in the paint shops. And with over 3,600 employees total and nearly 350 robots between the body and paint shops and the assembly areas, the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant is efficient and effective in addition to being sustainable and environmentally friendly.
