DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. is moving production of a popular small engine from Spain to Cleveland as sales of four-cylinder motors rise.
On Thursday, Ford will announce a $200 million investment at its factory in Brook Park, Ohio, so it can make the four-cylinder, 2-Liter “EcoBoost” engine, a person briefed on the matter told the Associated Press. The move will add about 450 jobs at the factory that now employs about 1,300 hourly and salaried workers.
The factory now makes two larger six-cylinder engines.
