May 18, 2018—Ford restarted assembly lines today, reported The Detroit Free Press.

Ford F-150 production resumed in Dearborn, Mich., and on Monday in Kansas City after a fire had previously disrupted production. The Super Duty truck line starts Monday in Kentucky.

The restart comes after a two-week disruption, according to the report. Ford brought a team together that arrived within hours of the May 2 fire and later secured the services of the world's largest cargo plane.

Ford, Meridian and others worked to get tools out and find manufacturing alternatives  by coordinating with partners and competitors in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and China.
