The company aims to transform its Research & Engineering Center in Dearborn, Michigan.
Ford has announced plans to transform its Research & Engineering Center in Dearborn into a “high-tech, efficient, forward-thinking campus for thousands of its designers, engineers and product development workers.”
The new facility will help Ford speed product and technology innovation, as well as attract world-class talent.
Initial construction is slated to be complete by the end of 2022, while the central campus building will be finished in 2025. The end goal is a campus of interconnected buildings that could one day house more than 20,000 employees.
“Our vision for our Dearborn Research & Engineering campus – and our new Corktown campus and Ann Arbor robotics lab – will enable Ford to lead the next era of transportation and personal mobility, and help us continue our founding mission of driving human progress through the freedom of movement,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Hackett.
