Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear met with Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally this week, and he says the conversation was encouraging.

With Ford upgrading the Louisville Assembly Plant to produce new vehicles, Beshear says he’d been planning to meet with Mulally for weeks. They convened on Monday and Beshear says Mulally told him that Ford’s future in Louisville is bright, though there’s no guarantee of further expansion in the city.

“We don’t have any particular news at this time, but he just indicated that Louisville is part of Ford’s future and I think that’s a good sign for us here,” he says.

Louisville is also home to Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant. Beshear says he plans to have more meetings with Mulally in the coming months.
