Ford closes factory in Brazil, exits heavy truck business

Some time in 2019 Ford will close its São Bernardo do Campo factory located in the suburbs of Sao Paulo, and its oldest manufacturing facility in Brazil. The factory's closure will see the loss of an estimated 2700 manufacturing jobs, and the end of local production of the previous-generation Fiesta. It will also see the automaker exit the local heavy commercial truck market, with the plant responsible for manufacturing the Cargo (above), F-4000 and F-350 models.
