    Ford Confirms F-150 Production to Restart on Friday, Super Duty on Monday

    Ford Motor Company has confirmed that production of the popular F-150 pickup was restart on Friday, May 18th, just over a week after F-Series production was halted due to a lack of magnesium chassis components – with production of the Super Duty pickups beginning next week.

    Over the course of the past two weeks, we have been discussing the supplier issue that led to production of the F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 coming to a stop at the Kansas City, Dearborn, Kentucky and Ohio assembly plants. After Meridian Magnesium Products’ building in Eaton Rapids, Michigan burned on May 2nd, Ford has faced a shortage of magnesium chassis components that has prevented them from building all of their most popular pickups.


    Ford worked with Meridian and “a global team of experts, that included partners and suppliers” to move the machinery needed to other facilities, where the stamping process of the magnesium chassis components could resume. Early reports indicated that Ford would turn to the Meridian facility in Canada, but the automaker had to ship the massive stamping tools to the United Kingdom, where production of the Ford truck parts has gotten underway.


    As a result, Ford will soon have enough magnesium chassis components to begin building trucks, so the Motor Company has announced that F-150 production will begin tomorrow (May 18th) at the Dearborn Truck Plant and Super Duty production will start back up on Monday (May 21st) in Kentucky and Ohio. Also, F-150 production at the Kansas City plant will resume on Monday.
