Why Has Ford Halted F-150 Truck Production Lines?

May 10, 2018

Ford will stop F-150 production lines at its Dearborn Truck Plant Wednesday night because of a fire at a parts supplier, The Detroit News reported. Earlier in the week, Ford stopped making F-150s at a Kansas City plant because it didn’t have the parts to build the trucks due to the same fire. Magnesium die-cast components supplier Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids, Michigan suffered an explosion followed by a major fire on May 2.
