Ford Motor Company is planning to resume production of the popular F-150 pickup as soon as Friday, with the supplier that caused the unscheduled downtime getting their own production back up and running after the May 2nd fire.
Last week, we reported that Ford Motor Company had stopped production of the F-150 and Super Duty pickups due to a shortage of magnesium chassis components. That shortage came about when Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, had a massive plant fire back on May 2nd. Although the automaker had some of those parts in stock, the factories quickly used them all up and when those components were gone, the Motor Company was forced to halt production of some truck plants.
