LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Business is good right for Ford, and that good business is turning into more jobs at other companies throughout Louisville.

One company, which just opened across from the Kentucky Truck Plant, works directly with Ford and hired all local employees.

The Westport Kentucky Integration Center on Collins Lane held their grand opening Tuesday. Employees at the center will install natural gas fuel systems in Ford F-250 and F-350 super duty trucks.

Officials at the Center said they will start out making 15 fuel systems a day and hope to expand from there.

They also said they hope to work with other companies that will supply parts for them here locally.
