Ohio Assembly or "OHAP" is a Ford Motor Company factory located in Avon Lake, Ohio. The 3,700,000 square foot plant sits on 419 acres and opened in 1974 to produce the Ford Econoline/E-Series van.[1] It produced the Mercury Villager and Nissan Quest from 1993 through 2002, and the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner until 2005. Ford E-Series van production stopped at the end of 2013 as Ford replaced the E-Series with the uni-body Ford Transit, which will be produced at Ford's facility in Kansas City, MO. The cutaway and strip chassis E-Series continues in production here for heavy duty applications. In Spring 2015, production of the Ford F-650 and F-750 began.[2] In the summer of 2016, production of the 2017 standard cab F-350, 450 and 550 began.

As of 2017, the plant employs over 1,700 persons.[2]

In 2017, Ohio Assembly received the coveted Q1 Quality Award for highest build quality off the assembly line.
