Ford Motor project a major win; FedEx driver fired over TikTok


Good Tuesday morning, Memphis, where the seismic announcement that Ford Motor Co. is investing $5.6 billion to create a massive industrial complex near Memphis is still sinking in.

Ford on Monday said it would create a campus at the Memphis Regional Megasite, about 50 miles northeast of Downtown Memphis, to produce a new generation of electric trucks and electric vehicle batteries. Construction is set to start by the end of the year, manufacturing is expected to begin in 2025, and the company is expected to employ about 5,700 people, our Daniel Connolly reports.

The news about the so-called Blue Oval City drew immediate praise. “Today is a truly remarkable day for West Tennessee and the entire region,” said U.S. Rep. David Kustoff, a Republican who represents the area that includes the Haywood County side of the Megasite. “Ford’s investment in the Megasite will bring in thousands of jobs and will reshape West Tennessee’s economy for generations to come.”
