Fire brings Ford F-150 production & some Super Duty to a halt; GM, FCA also impacted

Production on most of Ford’s F-Series trucks has been suspended following a major fire at a Michigan parts supplier that deals with several OEMs.

However, despite the temporary shutdown, Ford told reporters during a press conference call that its truck inventory is large enough that sales will not be affected by last week’s blaze at Meridian Magnesium Products of America’s plant in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.
