LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A spokesman for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says Ford Motor Co. this week will announce a “significant” investment in the Kentucky Truck Plant that will add new jobs.

Spokesman Chris Poynter declined to say how many jobs were expected and told The Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1b5OpTr ) any further details would have to come from Ford.

A Ford spokesman declined comment. The company announced in an email Tuesday that it would be holding a tour and news conference at the Louisville plant on Thursday. The release said Ford’s president of the Americas, Joe Hinrichs, is to attend along with Gov. Steve Beshear and Fischer.

A spokeswoman for Beshear referred comment to Joe Hall, spokesman for the state’s Economic Development Cabinet. Hall said department officials would not comment until the Thursday announcement.
