At the same time, in order to meet the growing demand on the European market, Ford introduced a third exchange at the Craiova factory. Right now, Ford Craiova has about 6,200 employees working in three and four turns for both vehicle and engine production, according to Agerpres.
In addition to the two SUVs, EcoSport and Puma, Ford produces in Craiova the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine in the 95 hp, 125 hp, 125 hp mHEV and 155 hp mHEV.
