Mexico City: US carmaker Ford Motor Co., Ltd. will temporarily suspend production at its Hermosillo plant in Sonora, Mexico, on Friday due to material shortages, the plant’s labor union said Thursday.
The union added that workers will be paid 75% of their salary on Friday.
Ford also stopped production at its Hermosillo plant from October 11th to 12th, producing Bronco Sport SUVs and Maverick compact pickups.
The union did not identify which material was missing, but other automakers suffered a chip shortage as manufacturers shifted production to parts needed for laptop computers, cell phones and video games during the pandemic. I’m out.
Ford did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
Earlier this month, Ford announced that it would shut down production at its Flatrock, Michigan and Kansas City, Missouri plants.
