DETROIT (WWJ) – A brand new auto supplier facility is opening in Detroit on Wednesday.
Detroit Manufacturing Systems on the city’s west side is expected to bring hundreds of assembly jobs to the city through a long-term contract with Ford Motor Company.
The plant, which is located on Southfield Road, will eventually employ 500 people, building high-tech interior components for Ford vehicles.
Detroit Manufacturing Systems is a joint venture between the Rush Group and French supplier Faurecia SA.
Both Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and Detroit Mayor Dave Bing are expected to attend the official grand opening, along with representatives from Ford and the UAW.
