Ford has announced plans to resume F-150 production in MI on Friday and Kentucky on Monday, minimizing downtime after a fire severely damaged a supplier's magnesium parts factory.

The Dearborn, Mich. -based auto maker said Wednesday it is restarting production of the F-150 pickup at a Dearborn plant on Friday, after it went offline last week.

The No. 2 US automaker also said production would resume on Monday at a second F-150 plant in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as its F-series Super Duty truck plant in Louisville, Kentucky.

The fire at Meridian Magnesium Products in Eaton Rapids, Michigan meant that Ford couldn't get front-end bolsters for the Super Duty.

That work stopped after a fire at a parts supplier on May 2. The automaker rebuilt its supply chain for key magnesium parts used in the trucks and in sport utility vehicles including the Lincoln Navigator and Ford Explorer, according to a statement. The plant makes structural parts with about one-third going to Ford.

When the team removed the die from the Eaton Rapids factory, it was shipped to Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio.

Teams from Ford and several suppliers scrambled to recover 19 dies from the damaged facility.
