The Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ford companies are building an $200-million factory in Ohio, the Associated Press reports.
The announcement comes as the automaker is struggling to turn a profit amid falling sales.
The announcement comes a week after the three companies announced that they would not renew their 10-year contracts with the state.
“Dodge and Ford are committed to bringing a high-quality and innovative automotive assembly line to Ohio,” the companies said in a joint statement.
“We are committed in the long term to investing in Ohio and our workforce, and we will work to bring this new factory here to Ohio and bring jobs to the state.”
“We are looking forward to working with Gov.
John Kasich, Gov.
Mary Fallin, and the Ohio Chamber of Commerce to make this a great investment for Ohio,” Ford said in the statement.
Earlier this week, Ford announced plans to build a factory in Columbus, Ohio, but the news didn’t make the rounds in the media.
In a statement, the companies expressed optimism for the future of the Ohio plant, but said they would make the decision on their own.
