Ford F-150 production will officially resume on Friday

Ford F-150

By Monday, the company expects to restart production on Super Duty trucks at a plant in Louisville, Ky., and F-150s at its Kansas City, Mo., assembly plant.

While production of the F-150 was down for a week, Ford says they started working immediately after the fire.

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.

Production of F-Series pickups will restart first at Ford's Dearborn, Michigan, factory on Friday, then at plants in Kentucky and Missouri on Monday.

Ford is resuming production of its F-150 pickup following a fire at a plant where parts for the vehicle are made. "The ramp-up time to full production is improving every day".

"Faced with unexpected adversity, the Ford team, including our global supply partners, showed unbelievable resiliency, turning a devastating event into a shining example of teamwork", said Ford's executive VP of product development and purchasing.

That work stopped after a fire at a parts supplier on May 2. The plant makes structural parts with about one-third going to Ford. This is in stark contrast to usual procedure which typically requires 10 days just to get the proper import and export approvals.
