Ford to resume F-150, Super Duty production

Ford F-150 Production to Resume as of Friday Ford F-150 Production to Resume as of Friday Send to a friend

Production of Ford's Super Duty at its Louisville, Kentucky, truck plant and the F-150 at its Kansas City, Missouri, assembly plant are targeted to resume by Monday.

The fire at Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids, Michigan meant that Ford couldn't get front-end bolsters for the Super Duty.

All-new Ford 2015 F-150 pickup trucks move down the final inspection line at the Ford Rouge Center in Dearborn, Michigan, November 11, 2014.

Production of the Expedition and Navigator SUVs continues without interruption at Louisville, Ford said.

The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for decades and any extended production delays would have had serious consequences for the automaker. "Thanks to their heroic efforts, we are resuming production of some of our most important vehicles ahead of our original targets". However, Ford and its suppliers managed to cut the total time for the entire move to 30 hours, including trans-Atlantic flight time.

A team in Nottingham was waiting to receive the die and take it to Meridian's nearby factory.

While the situation isn't ideal, Ford is making the best of it and notes parts built in the United Kingdom will be flown to the United States daily until production in Eaton Rapids returns to pre-fire levels.

Ford executives declined to say how many vehicles were not produced as a result of the idling, though they said customers should have no problems finding trucks in dealership lots.
