Re: Saline Branch - What saved the line
Before Visteon, I think it was actually a Ford Plant of some kind. Plastics and trim. Opened in 1966. Visteon took control in 2000. Visteon sold back to Ford motor company in 2005 in an attempt to avoid bankruptcy. Ford so named the company Automotive Components Holdings LLC. They then in turn sold the plant to Johnson Controls in 2007 pending the ability to garner a new contract with the existing employees. This did not happen, and in 22008, Johnson Controls backed out of the deal with Ford, nullifying the purchase. after a term of jockying employees around it's system, Ford began negotiations to again sell the plant. In May of 2012, a company called Faurecia announced that it was negotiating to take over the remaining operations of the plant. And so it seems that this is the name of the current plant, only still under the control ov Automotive Holdings Company LLC. Are you confused yet?
