LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Ford Motor Co. has revealed that it intends to boost the size of its stamping facility, body shop and materials handling at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville.

Multiple media outlets report that the company has filed plans with Metro Louisville zoning officials, seeking approval to add a total of 288,715 square feet at a handful of locations on its 413-acre site in eastern Jefferson County. Ford officials declined to discuss the plans.

The company hasn’t disclosed how much the planned conversion of its Super Duty models to aluminum frames will cost. The plant manufactures F-250, 250, 450 and 550 Super Duty models, as well as the Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. Officials say they want to produce lighter trucks to boost fuel economy and increase each truck’s towing capacity.
