Ohio Assembly is a Ford Motor Company factory located in Avon Lake, Ohio. The 419-acre (170 ha) plant 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. Starting in Spring 2015, production of the Ford F-650 will commence.[2]

As of 2014, the plant employs over 1,700 persons.[2]
