A dedicated Ford truck owner was recently given an opportunity to see his 2017 F-350 Super Duty being built at the Ford Truck Plant in Kentucky.
Nate Berges, a participant in Fords’s Insiders program, was also given a chance to work alongside UAW employees and help build some of his truck, which he drove out of the factory upon completion.
“The people in this plant are phenomenal,” Berges says during a short video Ford posted on YouTube. “What’s amazing is how excited they are for you to be purchasing the vehicle. They lit up once they found out it was your truck.”
Berges owns several Super Duty pickup trucks, in addition to a fleet of chassis cabs for his family’s awning company, of which he is the fourth-generation owner.
“Ford trucks are the only trucks I will every buy,” said Berges. “Ford trucks get the job done – period.”
In an official welcome to the 2017 F-Series Super Duty, Berges was joined at the plant by Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas, Congressman John Yarmuth of Kentucky’s 3rd District, Greg Poet of the UAW National Ford Department and several hundred Ford employees.
