Ford Motor Company President and CEO Alan Mulally thanked plant employees for their part in building the company's new small car.

"The most important thing we can do at Ford Motor Company is create the products that people really want and value," Mulally said. "The team at Wayne Assembly is helping Ford address the demand for small, well-equipped cars as they build the new Ford Focus with an unwavering focus on quality and craftsmanship."

Ford invested $130 million in Wayne Stamping and Assembly for new tooling and equipment to build the all-new two-door coupe and the four-door sedan Focus models. Upgrades include new robotics, more precise welding guns for improved exterior fit and finish and the addition of 130 new direct-current electric hand tools to ensure more ergonomically friendly and error-proof assembly. Vision cameras also have been installed to measure the dimensional integrity of every Focus built on the line and a new rough road track includes more varied surfaces to ensure each assembled unit adheres to strict noise-vibration-handling (NVH) targets.

2008 Ford Focus, which is fun to drive, features industry-exclusive technology including ambient lighting and Ford SYNC™, the hands-free voice-activated in-car communication system that seamlessly integrates Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and digital music players. |GlobalGiants.com|
