Ford Interrupts Work At Two Truck Plants

Ford Motor Co. says it has temporarily shut down two light truck plants in Michigan and Kentucky.

The shutdowns come two weeks ahead of their planned holiday closings.

A spokeswoman says the move is part of the company's typical response to adjust supply to meet fluctuating demand.

The affected plant in Louisville builds the Explorer sport utility.

Transpark tenant, Bowling Green Metalforming, makes the frames for the vehicle.

More plant cuts are expected after the first of the year, as part of Ford's announced plan for a seven-percent reduction in production. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
