Ford Motor Company will transform facilities on their Dearborn campus in a 10-year renovation plan, the automaker revealed today.

Construction is set to begin this month and Ford's 30,000 employees there will be eventually colocated into two campus locations.

“As we transition to an auto and a mobility company, we’re investing in our people and the tools they use to deliver our vision,” said Ford President and CEO Mark Fields in a statement. “Bringing our teams together in an open, collaborative environment will make our employees’ lives better, speed decision-making and deliver results for both our core and emerging businesses.”

The centralized campus will focus on the automaker's plan to be an auto and mobility company, while the second product campus location will include a new Design Center and trails, on-demand shuttles, eBikes and green spaces. 

The work is expected to be completed in 2026.
