Lincoln Continental by Pikeville, TN
Johnson Controls awarded Ford contract for auto window regulators
October 6, 1987 (PD: 201410)
The October 6, 1987 issue of the Johnson Controls newsletter Briefing reported that Ford Motor Company had awarded the company a contract for $20.4 million in window regulator business.
The window regulators would be produced at the Pikeville, Tennessee plant over a three-year period beginning in 1988 with the Lincoln Continental. Other models involved were the 1989 Thunderbird/Cougar, the 1990 Lincoln Town Car, and the 1990 Ford Bronco II.
Today (and with a far greater product line than in 1987), Johnson Controls continues to supply Ford Motor Company with automotive seating and interiors.
