Ford is "Build For America," a slogan that highlights the importance of American manufacturing and celebrates the flexibility and resolve of its workers. Ford’s workforce quickly shifted gears to develop urgently needed medical supplies during the pandemic. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Ford has focused on the safety and health of its workforce, implementing robust safety and care protocols, including health assessment measures, personal protective equipment provisions and facility modifications to increase social distancing at all its facilities. Ford employs more hourly workers in the United States than any other automaker and assembles more vehicles in America than any other automaker.
When the pandemic began, Ford was “Built to Lend a Hand,” offering payment relief for existing customers. Ford then shifted to an initiative for new customers that allowed up to six months of payment relief with the purchase of a new vehicle – all while working with volunteer autoworkers to produce and deliver life-saving medical and personal protective equipment from its auto factories.
