JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Officials say Ford Motor Co. will create an additional 900 jobs in Missouri to build the next-generation F-150 pickup.

Gov. Jay Nixon says Ford’s decision to add jobs at the Kansas City Assembly Plant shows the growth of the state’s automotive manufacturing industry.

He was scheduled to visit Magna Seating of America, an Excelsior Springs supplier of seating components to Ford’s Missouri plant, on Wednesday but the trip was delayed until Thursday because of bad weather. The governor’s office says Nixon will discuss the continued expansion of the state’s auto sector in Kansas City and across Missouri.

The Michigan-based company will have more than 7,000 workers in Kansas City with the new positions.
