Ford is almost done building out a brand-new, state-of-the-art plant packed with new technology and using the latest next-gen AVS automatic vehicle scheduling system to assemble the electric F-150 Lightning, coming in spring 2022. With the final assembly for the lightning pickup in Dearborn, Michigan, Ford is using Siemens technology and automation for production. Electro-Matic has provided them with PLCs, wireless communication, power control equipment, broadcast displays, AGVs, as well as our full-color LED displays from Electro-Matic Visual.
Since the pandemic hit the United States, Ford has been tremendous in how they have addressed, not only their employees but the public as well. Ford decided to produce respirators, ventilators, protective gowns, face shields and face masks to combat COVID-19 under a program called the Guardian Project. Due to the urgency of this project, Ford needed help figuring out how to produce these PPE’s in an automotive plant, since they don’t typically make products like this with equipment that would be coming from Asia. Electro-Matic stepped in to help and was then deemed the sole supplier for that project.
