In November, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant won a MotorCities Award of Excellence in the Revitalization category for its first-floor restoration project. Recently, I had the chance to visit the facility and speak with President and COO Jill Woodward and Trustee and Past President Steve Shotwell (both pictured above) about the project.
