Ford has announced that it will be scheduling two weeks of downtime for the factory where two of its compact cars were manufactured. The factory is located in Wayne, Michigan and is used to build the Ford Focus and C-Max hybrid cars. Ford plans to idle the factory to trim available inventory after the automotive industry recorded the first decline in sales in 27 months.
Sales of cars and light trucks in the US declined by 4.2% in September. Ford says that the days supplied both of those vehicles increased with the decline in automobile purchases. Despite idling the factory building these two compact cars, Ford is boosting output of some models.
