FLAT ROCK (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company celebrated the launch of the Fusion production at its Flat Rock Assembly Plant Thursday.

The automaker says demand for the four-door sedan has been so great, the company could not keep pace with just one production line at a Mexican assembly plant.  Ford hired 1,400 workers for a second shift at the plant that also produces the Mustang.

Sales of the Fusion continues to rise and are up by 13-percent so far this year compared to 2012.
