Motors has engaged HOK Architects to redevelop an environmentally contaminated

site in Connersville, IN, into a sustainable campus to house

Carbon's headquarters, research and development, production, service, sales,

training, and vehicle recycling operations. Connersville

was once home toautomakers Auburn, Cord,

Duesenberg, Ansted, Empire, Lexington

and McFarlan.


Motors recently named Michael D. Cowley, former executive product development

manager for Global Powertrain Fuel Systems in North America and Europe for all vehicle lines at Ford Motor Company, as
