FORD IN BUFFALO - 1991

 FORD IN BUFFALO - 1991
 BUFFALO, N.Y., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company


(NYSE: F) made significant civic and financial contributions in 199l to the city of Buffalo and Western New York.
 Despite a record financial loss in l99l, Ford -- through its Community Relations Committee -- maintained its commitments and donated more that $75,000 to area civic, cultural and educational facilities.
 More than $40,000 was donated by the company to the United Fund of Buffalo and Erie County, with an additional $2l6,000 coming from contributions from employees at the Buffalo Stamping Plant.
 Ford car and truck sales in the metropolitan Buffalo area in 1991 generally reflected the impact of the nationwide recession when compared with previous-year results. Buffalo Ford dealers sold 8,158 cars -- down 21 percent from l990, and 6,856 trucks -- a decrease of nine percent from the previous year. The three Buffalo Lincoln-Mercury dealers sold 1,832 cars in 1991, down slightly from 1990.
 The more than 2,400 employees at Ford's Buffalo Stamping Plant received approximately $108 million in wages and salaries during 1991. The company also paid more than $2.3 million in property taxes, and purchased in excess of $l5 million worth of goods and services from Buffalo-area suppliers.
 The plant manufactures sheet metal panels, rear floor pan assemblies, rear door assemblies, quarter panels and roofs. Every Ford vehicle in North America -- with the exception of the Ford Econoline Van -- uses the products made by Buffalo's employees.
 Ford's Financial Services Group -- which earned a record $927 million in 1991 -- also has operations in Buffalo and Western New York. The Associates -- a leading consumer, commercial finance and insurance company -- has 66 branches in New York with a commercial lending office in Buffalo that finances heavy- and medium-duty trucks and truck trailers. Ford Credit maintains one branch office in Buffalo with 36 employees.
