The factory Getrag Ford, established in Gironde, was chosen to produce the new manual gearbox which will be used for future small-engine cars that Ford will be marketing all over Europe.
The investment represents 110 million Euros.
This is good news for the 780 factory employees since the production and their jobs are guaranteed for the next 10 years to come, thanks to this new contract.
This success is the result of a significant investment in production tools and exemplary social dialogue.
