Schumer advocates for Hamburg plant with Ford CEO

Sen. Charles Schumer urged Ford Motor Co.’s chief executive officer to “strongly consider” choosing the company’s stamping plant in Hamburg for new work to support a vehicle assembly plant being expanded in Ontario.

Schumer spoke by phone Friday to Ford CEO Alan Mulally, in light of the automaker’s recently disclosed plan to invest $682 million in its Oakville, Ont., assembly plant. The Hamburg plant has a long history of supplying stamped metal parts to the Oakville site, which is about 80 miles away from the Route 5 facility.

Schumer said he emphasized to Mulally his efforts to improve cross-border transportation through a prescreening pilot program at the Peace Bridge, to provide for a reliable international border.
