More than 140 acres off of LaPlaisance Road has been cleared and construction is now well underway in preparation for a Ford Customer Service Division packaging facility in Monroe Township.
Announced in May 2022, the facility will replace the 142-acre Harbor Dunes Golf Club. The project is expected to cost $35 million and create more than 600 union jobs, with operations to begin in 2024 to help accelerate parts shipments for Ford customers.
The facility is expected to be similar in size and scope to Ford’s distribution center at the former Nike Missile Base in Frenchtown Township.
The announcement of the packaging facility coming to Monroe was part of a larger announcement by Ford and the United Auto Workers of a $3.7 billion investment and more than 6,200 new union jobs the automotive company intends to create across Michigan, Ohio and Missouri.
Michigan will see a $2 billion investment and 3,200 union jobs. Along with the facility in Monroe Township, this investment includes the creation of nearly 2,000 jobs throughout three assembly plants in Michigan to increase production of the F-150 Lightning electric truck to 150,000 per year at Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, produce the Ranger pickup at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne and an all-new Mustang coupe at Flat Rock Assembly Plant.
