FORD TO CONSOLIDATE MACOMB-AREA TRIM PLANTS

 DEARBORN, Mich., July 22 /PR Newswire/ -- Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) Plastic and Trim Products Division (PTPD) plans to strengthen its manufacturing operations in Macomb County with a consolidation of operations.
 New products and technologies will be added to the automotive trim plants in Chesterfield Township and Utica, Frank E. Macher, PTPD general manager, said. The consolidation also will include a transfer of the products and most of the 554 employees from the Division's Mount Clemens Plastics Plant to the other two plants over the next two years. Some management employees will be transferred to other Ford locations.
 "The plan will help us improve our competitive position," Mr. Macher said. "We will add some products and eliminate others to focus our resources on areas that offer greater financial return.
 "With planned investments of $50 million in new equipment and technology to improve our products and processes, we believe the realignment will provide increased job security for our employees."
 Ford said its future plans for the Mount Clemens facility, following the two-year consolidation, are undetermined.
