Ford New Zealand has denied rumours that part of the company is to be sold, saying that it's business as usual at the Manukau City alloy wheel factory in south Auckland, according to the New Zealand Herald. Ford New Zealand's public and government affairs manager Lisa Franklin told the newspaper: "It's not surprising that there are rumours around because there have been [several] over the past couple of years - but at the moment we're not aware of anything. Surely, we would know."
