Next week, Ford Motor Company is expected to make a big announcement at the automaker’s Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, reports the Courier-Journal. State Governor Steve Beshear and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer are anticipated.

Ford hasn’t yet revealed the nature of the big announcement in store, but as the Journal notes, it’s likely to do with the forthcoming 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty. Ford Motor Company has already confirmed the new Super Duty would continue to be produced at Kentucky Truck, and had planned to hire on additional workers – up to 3,000 – to meet demand.

To accommodate the production of a new F-Series Super Duty, Ford Motor Co.’s Kentucky Truck Plant is expected to change in appearance sometime soon as well. According to the Courier-Journal, plans submitted to the city of Louisville in September describe expansions planned for the stamping, shipping, and body shop areas of the facility. Spanish automotive supplier Grupo Antolin is also set to open two new facilities right down the road from Kentucky Truck, although Ford hasn’t commented on that.
