Ford began resuming vehicle production in the United States on May 18, 2020, adopting new coronavirus safety protocols such as health assessments, personal protective equipment, and facility modifications to extend social distance.
Ford Motor has significantly reduced production at seven North American plants as the global shortage of semiconductor chips, including facilities to produce profitable pickup trucks, continues.
Actions vary from factory to factory, but range from canceling overtime shifts to closing facilities for up to three weeks from April to June.
Affected plants are located in Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, and Ontari, Canada. We produce a wide range of products, from F-150 pickups and vans to Ford Explorer SUVs and Ford Escape crossovers.
