Ford Rouge Factory Tour

The original Dearborn Rouge Plant launched in 1917 was the most radical innovation the auto industry had very seen, eventually employing over 100,000 workers. Four generations later the Ford family embarked on a revitalization of the Rouge facility every bit as ambitious as the original construction of Henry Ford.

A tour of this modern facility is an excursion into Ford history and the current realm where environmental innovation and industrial production work together to put an entirely new face on manufacturing that would make Henry Ford quite proud. If you are in the Detroit area be sure to stop by Greenfield Village & the Henry Ford Museum, and be sure to take the Factory Tour as well.
