Genk has been the van's main assembly site, but the Transit also has been built in Turkey since its launch and the smaller model series Transit Connect is manufactured in Turkey as well.
Full production at Genk will continue until the end of January to avoid any delivery bottlenecks.
The entire Transit series will be manufactured in Kocaeli starting in May.
Bernhard Mattes, CEO at Ford of Germany in Cologne, announced that between 550 million euros and 600 million euros will be invested in new and highly flexible production facilities at the Genk plant, which also builds the Mondeo.
The successors to the Mondeo sedan, the Galaxy minivan as well as a Ford third model are scheduled to be built at the plant.
