Ford has earned its reputation as a global provider of cars and trucks, and the company is bolstering its U.S. workforce with the addition of more positions in Ohio. According to IndustryWeek, Ford officials are investing roughly $200 million in their Ohio automotive plant as they look to develop fuel-efficient engines. 

The recent investment could be the first of many for the company over the next few years. Ford administrators stated that they intend to create 12,000 hourly jobs in the United States by 2015.

Auto industry provider GNS America is also in the process of expanding its facility in Holland Charter Township, Michigan. The Grand Rapids Business Journal reports that the business is hiring new professionals for its work team and hopes to boost its annual sales by $10 million with its recent efforts.  

Local officials provided GNS with tax exemptions to help the company enhance its work site and hire township residents. Additionally, the company's total investment of more than $3.8 million could significantly benefit the municipality's economy, as qualified automotive experts can provide dependable support to help GNS improve its everyday operations.
