Ford to Resume F-150, Super Duty Vehicle Production Within Days


Ford is resuming production of its F-Series pickup trucks, ending assembly line shut downs at two of its most important plants that have lasted more than a week.

Thankfully, the company has solved the problem and plans to resume production of the F-150 at the Dearborn Truck Plant on Friday.

Ford wanted to resume production of the popular and profitable models as quickly as possible and this required a herculean effort.

He said growth was broad-based across marketing segments and added that Tata Steel Europe had a good quarter despite currency headwinds.

The automaker said on Wednesday that work will restart Friday at the Dearborn Truck Plant. The vehicle generated $41 billion in revenue previous year, about 28 percent of total sales and the lion's share of Ford's profits.

Ford is restarting production of the F-150 truck, one of its most lucrative and best-selling vehicles, after it suspended manufacturing following a fire at an auto parts factory earlier this month.

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.

While production of the F-150 was down for a week, Ford says they started working immediately after the fire.

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.
