Ford Cuts 150 Jobs As Panther Production Ends
The vehicles, based on Ford’s ancient “Panther” platform, are slated to be killed off in September, and Ford says that the layoffs are necessary to keep costs in line once the Buffalo plant stops producing components for the Panther vehicles. The plant will employ 500 workers once the cuts are made.
Ford will also lay off thousands of workers at its plant in St. Thomas, Canada, where the vehicles are assembled.
