F 150 Production Held Up by Frame Shortage

Its not aluminium and its not labor thats holding up the F-150 this time...its a shortage of frames.

Quote:
Automotive News reports that frames for the 2015 Ford F-150, which are supplied by a Elizabethtown, Kentucky-based plant operated by Metalsa S.A. de C.V., arenít being produced at a rate high enough to meet demand. Thatís forced both 2015 Ford F-150 assembly plants to cut back on hours Ė one in Dearborn, Michigan, and the other in Kansas City, Missouri.

Sort of good news, the new F-150 raised the bar and it's not entirely surprising they've ran into this roadblock. Even with this roadblock I doubt it'll impact sales much. Folks are LOYAL to F-Series trucks.

well that was fast, Autonews is now reporting that the frame shortage is over... http://www.autonews.com/article/2015...ull-production

Ford canceled planned overtime production on May 30 in Kansas City because of a shortage of frames from Metalsa's plant in Kentucky, according to an official with UAW Local 249 in Kansas City. It has canceled several overtime days in Dearborn and ended some regular shifts early in the past few months, workers there have said.
