Ford intends to resume work at some of its enterprises on April 6, according to Reuters. The brand made such an announcement after Ford stopped production in North America earlier this month because of a coronavirus. The company plans to launch production with the most profitable models, including the Ford F-150. First, Ford will resume production in Mexico at the Hermosillo plant that manufactures Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. On April 14th, plants in Dearborn and Kentucky will join him. Next in line are factories in Ohio and Kansas City.
The launch of these enterprises will lead to the resumption of production of Ford Super Duty, Ford Expedition, Ford Transit and Lincoln Navigator models.
Recall that initially the brand declared idle at its plants until March 30, but later the dates were revised. Ford’s announcement that the company would soon resume operations was made after the company said it would take $ 15.4 billion to withstand the economic uncertainty of the new virus pandemic.
