Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) HEFFX Highlights
- Ford Thailand, the local arm of US carmaker Ford Motor Co, reported its second quarter sales jumped 34% year-on-year to 12,575 vehicles, driven by continued growth in demand for the Ranger pickup truck and Everest mid-size SUV.
- Ford’s quarterly sales results translated into an overall market share gain of 1.3 percentage points to 6.3% for the April-June period, marking Ford’s highest-ever quarterly market share.
- Ford announced plans to build the Ranger midsize pickup and Bronco SUV to great applause at the 2017 Detroit auto show, but there’s not much celebration from leaders of the vehicles’ future home in Wayne, Mich.
- The small suburb southwest of Detroit is a factory town. Ford is the largest employer there — William Beaumont Hospital is second — and the Michigan Assembly Plant takes up 2 square miles of the 6-square-mile city. Although just more than 200 of Wayne’s 17,000 residents work at the plant, the men and women of UAW Local 900 frequent the bars, restaurants and other small businesses there.
