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

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.

The Crew 2 beta kicks off later this month
Forget what you know about the first game, though, The Crew 2 is a far bigger, more ambitious prospect than its forebear. For those planning on playing on the PC, the system requirements haven't been released yet but will be soon.

The disruption also shut down production of Ford's best-selling F-150 pickups in Kansas City and Dearborn, Michigan, but those plants are also expected to be running as normal by Monday.

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".

Earlier today I wrote that Williams has been playing with fire this season due to control issues and a lack of swings and misses. This double - which was hit off of left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer - would score Frazier to run the score to 7-0 Pirates.

The plant, which employs about 8,100 hourly workers in all, has continued to make Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs.

A team in Nottingham was waiting to receive the die and take it to Meridian's nearby factory. After inspecting and repairing the dies, Ford said some portions of the Eaton Rapids facility were able to restart production.
