Ford Rouge Factory Tour
Hellwig joined LTAA’s tour of the Ford Rouge Factory where they build F150s. The Rouge plant has a lot of history and provided the most radical innovation for the auto industry. It now is setting the standard for incorporating environmentally friendly standards; the rouge has the largest living roof, naturalized habitat, solar arrays and energy saving photovoltaic panels. We got a bird’s eye view walkway around the assembly plant. We saw trucks built in front of our eyes; each employee has a minute to finish their station job, and within an hour they build 60 trucks. We got to see the testing area that they put each truck through also. It was a very cool experience! If you are Dearborn, MI you have to make time to visit the Rouge Factory. You can learn more about it at thehenryford.org.
Here are some photos from the tour and the group that toured the factory.
