Ford engine success leads to increased work

The Ford engine plant in Cleveland, Ohio has added a third shift to help it cope with rising demand for the company's new EcoBoost V6 engines.

With several new Ford cars for sale now including this popular, fuel-efficient technology as standard, the automotive industry has been struck by the strength of EcoBoost sales since its introduction in 2009.

The new shift will provide work for 250 employees, and Ohio Governor John Kasich took a celebratory tour of the factory after the news had been announced.

Ford has so far sold 180,000 vehicles with EcoBoost engines, 121,000 of which came in 2011. This year alone has recorded impressive figures of 39,000, proving that the general public recognises the carbon reducing and money-saving benefits of the innovative product.
