FROM THE ARCHIVES 

Ford's the latest to be convinced to make America even greater, canceling a $1.6-billion plant that was already under construction in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, and instead making a 700-job investment in Flat Rock, Michigan, where not that long ago Ford committed to creating 1,200 new jobs. Next up for critique by the Central Scrutinizer? General Motors — another firm already investing substantially in the US — whose global real estate and facilities director talked us through the company's global approach to site selection four years ago.

Ford on Sept. 10, 2012, committed to create 1,200 new hourly jobs at its plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, which this week got another boost thanks to the company's pullout from a $1.6-billion project in Mexico.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"  
testimonial quote I read and advertise with Site Selection because it is the standard of editorial excellence in the industry and I get results. A foreign consulate called me from my ad placement. That call resulted in a meeting with the consular general, an invitation to breakfast with the Prime Minister when he recently visited Miami and developing projects for the Miami area. Site Selection delivers."
