The shortage of microchips and semiconductors continues to affect the automotive sector. Ford is among the companies that have been most affected by this crisis, the impact of which does not seem to be behind it: the car manufacturer of the Blue Oval has in fact announced production cuts in eight of its plants in the United States, Mexico and Canada to all next week. In some of these plants the cuts will be only partial, while in others the production will come suspended completely until the situation is restored.
The alarm had already been raised in recent days by Ford, which had foreseen a drop in sales and production volumes in the current quarter. Now we will move from words to deeds: production in the factories in Michigan, Chicago and Cuautitlan, Mexico, will be suspended completely, as will that of the F-150 pick-up in Kansas City, while only one shift will be carried out for assembly. of the Transit. The same fate will befall Ford’s manufacturing plants in Dearborn, Kentucky and Louisville: the changes to the production plan they will be implemented on Monday 7 February, and will remain in effect until the end of the week. Ford strongly hopes that the situation can improve quickly: according to estimates made by the carmaker of the Blue Oval there will be a significant improvement in volumes in the second half of the year.
