HAYWOOD CO., Tenn. (WMC) - Work continues on the multi-million dollar project Ford is making in West Tennessee.

With Blue Oval City, Ford is working to create a narrative centered around people.

“There is a technical element to manufacturing but there’s this human element as well, and I have a passion for the human side of manufacturing.”

That quote is part of a video released Monday to tout the company’s efforts to attract local workers.

Ford is collaborating with local schools to create programs that will eventually funnel specially-trained students to Blue Oval City.

The plant is expected to create about 6,000 jobs in total.
