Dec. 7, 2022—Ford and Korean firm SK Group are making progress on a 1,500-acre electric vehicle battery plant in Kentucky.

WDRB reports that the project represents a $5.8 billion investment to begin producing lithium-ion batteries by 2025. The facility is estimated to employ 5,000 people once operational.

An area technical college, Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, is working with a $25 million grant from the state to offer credentials and coursework that could aid potential workers at the facility, though officials for the company have not offered specifics on job eligibility.
