US car manufacturer Ford is to create 1,000 new jobs at its plant in in Almussafes (Spain). The expansion follows the decision to close the company's plant at Genk (see Ford-BE2012) to take place in 2014 and the transfer of production of some models to the Spanish plant. The company will re-introduce the night shift as of 1st September 2013. This measure is part of an agreement signed with the unions in April. For a previously announced restructuring see Ford-ES2009.
