U.S. SENATE TO HONOR FORD'S CLAYCOMO PLANT WITH PRODUCTIVITY AWARD

 U.S. SENATE TO HONOR FORD'S CLAYCOMO PLANT WITH PRODUCTIVITY AWARD
 CLAYCOMO, Mo., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) Kansas City Assembly Plant today received the U.S. Senate Productivity Award.
 The award, established by the U.S. Senate in 1982, recognizes companies and organizations that have displayed superior productivity and promotes the importance of productivity to the United States' standing in the world market.
 U.S. Senator Christopher S. (Kit) Bond of Missouri presented the award to Ford Kansas City Plant Manager Richard Gilligan and Local 249 President Matt Snell of the United Auto Workers during special ceremonies at the plant.
 "All of us at Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant are honored to be selected for this prestigious award," Gilligan said. "This award is a tribute to the men and women who build the F-Series pickup and the Ford Tempo and Mercury Topaz."
 Ford Motor Company's Kansas City Assembly Plant employs more than 4,200 people, will produce more than 390,000 cars and trucks during the 1992 model year, and will contribute more than $4 million in taxes to the state and local economies in 1992.
 The plant is the sole source for the sporty new F-Series Flareside pickup and the F-Series SuperCab, a model with an extended cab for additional storage or passenger seating. The Ford F-Series pickup truck has been the best-selling vehicle in North America--car or truck, foreign or domestic--for the past 10 years. The plant also builds the popular Ford Tempo and Mercury Topaz.
 Ford has built more than 13 million vehicles in the Kansas City area since 1912. The company's Claycomo plant opened its doors in 1951.
 Besides the Kansas City Assembly Plant, area Ford components include a Ford Parts and Distribution Center, Ford Division Regional Sales Office, Ford Parts and Service Division district office, a Ford Motor Credit Company branch office and a regional governmental affairs office.
 Statewide in Missouri, Ford last year employed more than 7,500 people, produced more than 560,000 vehicles and spent more than $555 million with Missouri suppliers and more than $33.7 million with Kansas suppliers in 1991.
