DEARBORN, Mich.—Ford Motor Co. is hiring 850 workers to help build its new F-150 pickup truck.

The company says 500 of the workers will go to its truck plant in Dearborn, Mich., where the F-150 is assembled.

Another 300 workers will go to the automaker’s stamping plant in the city, and 50 workers will go to its Dearborn Diversified plant, which makes axles and other parts.

With the added hiring, Ford will have nearly 5,000 hourly workers at the complex near its headquarters.
