Ford resuming F-150, Super Duty production on Monday

Ford suspended production of the F-150 at its plant in Dearborn Michigan on Wednesday night. It had already suspended truck production at a plant just outside Kansas City Missouri. Those are the only plants that make the truck

Ford announced Wednesday that production of the F-150 would resume Friday at its Dearborn, Mich. plant now that the Easton Rapids facility is back in operation.

The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for decades and any extended production delays would have had serious consequences for the automaker. Ford teamed up with suppliers, including Walbridge and other contractors to work almost around the clock to resume production.

A fire at Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids, Michigan caused ripple effects throughout the automotive industry and one of the hardest hit companies was Ford which had to temporarily cease production of the popular F-150.

With F-Series inventory of more than 80 days, Ford dealers have not seen a big drop in the number of pickups in stock while production was stopped. The automaker rebuilt its supply chain for key magnesium parts used in the trucks and in sport utility vehicles including the Lincoln Navigator and Ford Explorer, according to a statement.

The automaker also flew one die weighing 87,000 pounds (39.5 tonnes) to a Meridian plant in Nottingham, England, after commissioning a giant Russian-built Antonov cargo plane - one of only 21 in the world.

Ford expects lost production of the F-Series will hurt Q2 EPS by $0.12-$0.14 but reaffirms its previous FY 2018 adjusted EPS guidance range of $1.45-$1.70.
