Ford to restart F-150 production; sees $0.12-$0.14 EPS hit in Q2

Ford to resume F-150 production Friday at Dearborn Truck Plant

Ford Motor Co.is resuming production of its F-150 pickup following a fire at a plant near Lansing where parts for the vehicle are made.

In a media briefing on Wednesday, Ford executives said the May 2 fire at the Meridian Magnesium Products plant in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, affected several automakers, but its team was the first to enter the fire-damaged plant "while it was still smoldering".

The No. 2 USA automaker also said production would resume on Monday at a second F-150 plant in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as its F-series Super Duty truck plant in Louisville, Kentucky.

Ford teams, together with suppliers including Walbridge and other contractors, worked almost around the clock to get America's best-selling vehicle franchise back on line as quickly as possible, according to a release.




"While the situation remains extremely dynamic, our teams are focused on returning our plants to full production as fast as possible", Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president of global operations, said in the statement.

Ford stopped making the big pickup trucks at KTP on May 5 following a fire at a supplier plant in MI. The plant makes structural parts with about one-third going to Ford. However, Ford and its suppliers managed to cut the total time for the entire move to 30 hours, including trans-Atlantic flight time.

A 2018 Ford F-150 "King Ranch" pickup truck is displayed during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, US, January 10, 2017.
