FORD MANAGERS RETURN TO HELMS OF CINCINNATI-AREA TRANSMISSION PLANTS

 FORD MANAGERS RETURN TO HELMS OF CINCINNATI-AREA TRANSMISSION PLANTS
 CINCINNATI, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) transmission executives are heading back to Ford plants in the Cincinnati area for new tours of duty.
 Al Ver, program manager for Ford's CD4E transaxle program, will return to the Batavia Transmission Plant July 13, as manager, succeeding Jim Schafer, who returns to the Sharonville Transmission Plant as manager.
 Ver was manager of the Batavia facility from January 1987, until August 1989, when he was named to the CD4E position.
 He will continue his duties as CD4E component program manager while also managing the Batavia plant. The new CD4E transaxle will be used in future Ford mid-sized and compact cars.
 Schafer, who had been manager of manufacturing and plant engineering at the Sharonville plant, succeeded Ver at Batavia in 1989.
 The Ford executives were reassigned to their former plants after Sharonville Plant Manager Rick Bair accepted a foreign service position with Ford of Europe, where he will coordinate transmission and driveline engineering matters in Europe.
 The Batavia and Sharonville plants will reopen July 13, after Ford's annual two-week plant vacation shutdown.
 Ver, who graduated in 1972 from Ohio State University with a master's degree in manufacturing management, joined Ford Motor Company in 1972. He held a number of managerial positions in the company's former Industrial and Chemical Products Division before moving to Transmission & Chassis Operations in the mid-80s.
 Schafer, who earned an MBA from Case Western Reserve University while working at Ford, joined the company in 1960 as an industrial engineer at the Rouge Manufacturing Complex in Dearborn, Mich. He went to Ford's Transmission & Chassis Operations in 1963 and has held several key positions at the Sharonville and Batavia plants.
