Ford Operations in North Africa Expanding to Morocco

Ford Operations in North Africa

Ford Operations in North Africa

The American car brand announced in May that it will expand Ford operations in North Africa, opening 13 new dealerships as well as sales and purchasing offices. Expansion will be heavily focused in Morocco, with eight of the new dealerships and a regional sales office in Casablanca and the new purchasing office in Tangier. Moroccan offices and showrooms will open by the end of 2015.

Ford also plans to introduce seven new vehicles in North Africa and double the production of parts from suppliers based there. Much of the increased part production will be shipped overseas to Ford’s assembly plant in Valencia, Spain. This increase and the new facilities will create thousands of jobs throughout North Africa.

Both Ford and officials from Morocco have spoken about their excitement for Ford expanding in Morocco, citing the country’s highly motivated and business-oriented workforce, plus the optimal location. Cambridge Classic Ford is excited to be part of a company with such innovative global pursuits, and we’re excited to see the new models in the North African lineup.

Cambridge Color Craze 5K Walk/Run

Cambridge Color Craze 5K

The second annual Cambridge Color Craze 5K Walk/Run will take place Saturday, June 13th, and will start at 9 AM at McFarland Stadium, with registration opening at 7 AM. All ages are welcome. Participation in the race costs $25 for pre-registration and $35 for runners who register the day of the race. Children 12 and under pay $15 to $20, and registration is free for children under 5.

Volunteers will be placed at six stations along the route to douse runners with different colored powders. Participants are encouraged to wear white clothing so the powder shows more clearly. After the race, the crowd will throw bags of color into the air in the “post-race color throw.”

Proceeds from the race go to the Cambridge High School girls’ soccer team, who are also organizing the event. The race is untimed and just for fun, and the route is mostly accessible to wheelchairs.

We at Cambridge Classic Ford recommend residents of Cambridge use extra caution when driving around the area of the 5K.
