The Saarland state government has described the decision by the US car manufacturer Ford against the Saarlouis location as a "farce".

"The group has opted for the economically worse offer," announced Prime Minister Anke Rehlinger and Economics Minister Jürgen Barke (both SPD) on Wednesday.

"For all we know, we can confidently say:

Saarlouis - The bottom line is that the Saarlouis location is clearly ahead.

So the impression arises: the process was never fair.”

Ford announced on Wednesday that it had chosen Valencia, Spain, as the location for the production of electric cars - and not Saarlouis.

“Ford played the workforce off against each other with this bidding competition in order to squeeze the lemon a little more.

It's shabby," explained Rehlinger and Barke.

The state government will still fight for the jobs: "The employees at the Saarlouis location are not to blame." Ford "slept through the future".

The most important message for employees is: “Nothing will happen to anyone by 2025.” Until then, the Focus will be built at the Saarlouis site.

But even after 2025, Ford “will be responsible for its decades-long Saarland history,” said Rehlinger and Barke.
