Ford Breaks New Ground In Chicago

There they all were on the stage, the representatives of companies that
will be moving into Ford Motor Co.'s new Chicago Assembly Plant supplier
park. They sat quietly during the speeches, and smiled and applauded on
cue for the assembled cameras. This was a major announcement, after all.
Ford is the first American automaker to open a brownfield supplier park
for one of its assembly plants in North America, building on a trend of
greenfield parks established in Europe and South America. These nine
suppliers will now be only a half-mile from the 75-year-old plant, which
in 2004 will begin to build the all-new Ford CrossTrainer and 500 models.
But as the suppliers were ushered off the stage to have their photos taken
with the grille of the CrossTrainer, they may well have been sweating
through their shirts and asking themselves, "Are we nuts?"
