Ford to restart Super Duty at Kentucky Truck Plant by May 21

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

Ford said Wednesday it will resume production of its popular F-Series pickup trucks after a fire at a parts supplier forced the automaker to bring its assembly lines to a halt.

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.

The F-Series accounts for nearly 40% of Ford's unit sales in the USA and has been the top selling vehicle in America for decades.

This follows the massive May 2 fire at the Meridian Magnesium Products facility in Eaton Rapids, Mich.

"While the situation remains extremely dynamic, our teams are focused on returning our plants to full production as fast as possible", said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, Global Operations. "Thanks to their heroic efforts, we are resuming production of some of our most important vehicles ahead of our original targets".
