Ford "Engine" Keeps Driving Big Clay County Success

December 2018

The city of Liberty boasts a number of significant projects. One with a regional impact involves Ford Motor Company’s $79 million project at the Ford Stamping Plant in Liberty. The 100,000-square-foot expansion brings the plant to a total of almost 900,000 square feet and 350 new jobs.

The original stamping plant was announced in 2011 and included $260 million in investment and added 230 jobs. The new work is part of Ford’s continued investment in Clay County, which also includes multi-million-dollar projects in the nearby Claycomo where plans have been announced for next-generation manufacturing of vehicles like the new all-electric E-Transit. Ford’s continued growth and investment in our community is one of the most significant success stories in the Midwest.
