Ford Motor Company Increases Production To Meet Demand

Ford Motor Company Increases Production To Meet Demand

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich.- We've got great news to share about Ford Motor Company and the auto industry as a whole! A recently revitalized demand for autos in the United States has followed years of cost reductions, plant closings, and battles with U.S. unions. And as demand continues to increase, Ford Motor Company announced they will boost production to meet the demand for their cars and trucks in North America by increasing manufacturing and shortening summer shutdowns.

While most of the region's Ford Motor Company manufacturing plants usually shut down for two weeks during the summer, the automaker has announced that as part of the plan to meet North American demand, the usual summer shutdown at most plants will be shorter.  This year, plants will only shut down for one week, instead of two, adding 40,000 units of capacity.

The ultimate goal is to increase North American manufacturing capacity to 200,000 vehicles. In addition to reducing summer shutdowns, Ford has added workers to make up a third shift at its Kansas City and Detroit assembly plants. Adding a third shift means the plants will be working beyond full capacity, making them more efficient and profitable.

Ford Motor Company's increased production to meet demand means that you'll be able to drive home in your dream Ford this summer! Visit our Grosse Pointe Area Ford Dealership where we can help with everything from New Ford Cars to Used Cars to Second Chance Financing!
