João Marcos Ramos: A Question of Style

Ford Brasil started operating as early as 1919 assembling cars and trucks. Since then, the investments of this US manufacturer in South America have multiplied and now Ford has numerous manufacturing facilities in Brazil. In Taubaté, they produce engines (the Zetec RoCam engine was produced for the first time here), transmission systems and components. This plant, incorporating the “Lean Manufacturing” philosophy, has a manufacturing capacity of 250,000 engines and 450,000 transmission systems per year.

In São Bernardo do Campo, they manufacture cars and trucks. More cars - about 250,000 per year - are turned out by the plants of Camaçarí, in the state of Bahia.

In the 4 millions of square meters of the Testing Center of Tatuí, in the state of São Paulo, stateof-the-art inspection systems perform every kind of test and evaluation of the finished product. The Ford industrial complex in the North-East of Camaçarí is the most recent Ford plant in South America. It was inaugurated in October 2001 in cooperation with 30 suppliers. By this new investment, named “Amazon project”, the US automaker has launched a new range of products onto the Brazilian market intended for the local market.

By incorporating the most modern technologies and the most advanced manufacturing concepts, like the Modular Sequential Assembling, Ford North-East has become a pilot plant for Ford throughout the world.
