The company's spokeswoman Marcey Evans said, "Ford will eliminate the shift at the Flat Rock, Michigan plant from Jul 12, 2010"
She further said, "Most of the workers at the plant will be offered work at other Ford plants."
The plant is jointly owned by Mazda and employs around 2,300 people. It produced about 1,02,000 vehicles in 2009.
Ford is blaming the move on slow sales in 2009 due to the tough economy and competition from the Chevrolet Camaro.
