Claycomo plant starts production of Ford Transit commercial van

The Transit, new to North America, is replacing the E-series, the best-selling commercial van in the U.S. One Claycomo shift has added 900 jobs and will build 300 Transits a day. Ford expects to add a second shift later this year with an additional 800 to 1,000 employees. Depending on demand, there could eventually be even more.
