Ford also details the involvement of Ford trucks in the construction of the Hoover Dam and in building more than 2,000 miles of road and 70,000 miles of trails throughout Alaska. More recently, the 2015 Ford F-150 has been integral in the construction of Dallas Cowboys headquarters in Frisco, Texas, which is set to be completed next fall.

“We’ve had good luck in regards to the reliability of Ford trucks and we have a lot of history with Ford. We also like that we can be consistent from F-150 up to F-750 throughout our fleet,” said Lynn Vanlandingham, VP of Equipment Operations, Mario Sinacola and Sons. Mario Sinacola and Sons is the contractor responsible for the construction of the facility.

“The Cowboys organization has a longstanding partnership with Ford Motor Company,” said Stephen Jones, Chief Operating Officer, Dallas Cowboys. “It’s great to know that the workhorse of Ford, the F-150, is helping in the building of the future home of the Dallas Cowboys.”
