Ford announced plans Thursday to add 450 jobs and invest nearly $200 million at an Ohio engine plant as it expects to more than double the sale of its fuel efficient 'EcoBoost' engines.
The 2.0 liter engines had previously been produced at Ford's plant in Valencia, Spain for use in the North American market.
"Overall employment at the Valencia plant will not be impacted," Ford said in a statement.
"The Valencia Engine Plant will transfer some employees to Valencia Assembly Plant to support increased production for C-MAX, Kuga, Transit Connect and Tourneo Connect."
