Ford logoFord (F) first made headlines in 2011 when it struck a four-year labor agreement that added 12,000 new U.S. manufacturing jobs, many of which were brought back home from Mexico, China and Japan.

More recently Ford has been pouring money into its Flat Rock plant in Michigan, where the company will build the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion — recently named “Green Car of the Year.” This is the first time the car will be built in the U.S. Plus, the plant will also be churning out the next-generation Mustang, and maybe even the full-size Lincoln MKS after that.

Earlier in April, the company announced it was starting the hiring of 400 new employees for Flat Rock, part of a 1,400-worker addition announced back in December 2012. For all of 2013, Ford plans to add 3,500 hourly jobs.
