The South Carolina Department of Transportation has selected Ford as the company to build a new fleet of trucks and buses for the state.
The company has been chosen for the $1.6 billion project, which will be completed by 2022.
The announcement comes just a week after Ford unveiled plans to open a plant in South Florida.
The South Florida plant will be one of the largest in the United States, and the company is hoping to double the amount of vehicles that are built here in the future.
The South Carolina project will be a joint venture between Ford and the State of South Carolina, a joint project that has been in the works for more than a decade.
The plant will employ about 15,000 workers, and it will be expected to employ about 4,000 people by 2026.
The new Ford trucks will have four-wheel drive, a larger battery pack, and other improvements that will make them more efficient.
