Ford will be investigating approximately $1 billion in Chicago to produce SUVs, adding about 500 high paying jobs.

From The Hill:

Ford Motor Company announced Thursday it will invest $1 billion at two Chicago factories to handle production of three new SUVs.

The company said in a news release that work on the assembly and stamping plants will begin in March and is expected to be completed by spring.

The expansion will result in 500 new full-time jobs, bringing total employment at the factories on the city's southeast side to 5,800.

The investment will expand production capacity for the new Ford Explorer ST and Explorer Hybrid, as well as the Lincoln Aviator, the company said.

The $1 billion will go toward a new body shop, a new paint shop, the installation of 3D printed tools at the assembly plant and new stamping lines at the other plant. The money also covers $40 million in workplace improvements, such as new lighting and cafeteria updates.
