Ford’s revamped Edge S-U-V will be assembled in a plant in southern Ontario, something being hailed by the head of the union, Unifor.
Ford says preparations are already underway for production in Oakville and it plans to export the vehicle, which features an array of smart technology, to 100 countries in 2019.
Jerry Dias says the move is a good sign because Ford is investing in new technology.
A Ford official says the company has no plans to hire more workers or change its operating pattern at the plant. (By Rob Curwain)
