Mayor's office says Ford to announce 'significant' investment at Kentucky Truck Plant

A spokesman for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says Ford Motor Co. this week will announce a "significant" investment in the Kentucky Truck Plant that will add new jobs.
Spokesman Chris Poynter declined to say how many jobs were expected and said any further details would have to come from Ford.

A Ford spokesman declined comment. The company announced in an email Tuesday that it would be holding a tour and news conference at the Louisville plant on Thursday.
A spokeswoman for Beshear referred comment to Joe Hall, spokesman for the state's Economic Development Cabinet. Hall said department officials would not comment until the Thursday announcement.
