Over the next few days, thousands of Ford Motor Co. employees will be laid off, most of them in Michigan, as the company cuts costs and continues to reorganize and transform its business model.

In a memo sent Monday to some 31,000 Ford employees in North America, Ford Chairman Bill Ford and CEO Jim Farley said Ford would cut its salaried workforce by 2,000 to “address all aspects of cost — from materials to… those related to qualityā€¯. and agency employees by 1,000 in the US, Canada and India.

The bulk of the cuts will take place in the US, Ford spokesman Mark Truby told the Free Press, adding, “The majority of our employee base is in Michigan, so a significant percentage of the job cuts will take place in Michigan.”

Ford has reorganized its operations in recent years, including splitting into divisions focused on either electric vehicles, internal combustion engine vehicles, and commercial sales. It’s part of the Ford+ plan.
