Blue Oval City Announcement

Ford Will Build the Ford F-Series Truck at the Memphis Regional Megasite, Located in Stanton, TN in Haywood County


This was a historic week for the HTL Region, West Tennessee, and the State as the Ford Motor Company and SK Innovation announced their selection of the Memphis Regional Megasite for one of the largest battery and vehicle manufacturing campuses in the U.S. Ford and SK Innovation will invest $5.6 billion to build a 3,600-acre mega campus called Blue Oval City on the Memphis Regional Megasite, where production of next-generation all-electric F-Series trucks will begin in 2025. The project will result in the creation of 5,800 new jobs in West Tennessee.

The project is anticipated to generate more than 27,000 new jobs, both directly and indirectly, to support the site’s operations. This will result in more than $1.02 billion in annual earnings.


The board of HTL Advantage welcomes Ford to the HTL Region!
