Ford's sudden decision to close the São Bernardo do Campo factory in Brazil left several suppliers with high inventories of parts ordered days before the February 19 announcement.
With BRL 2 million in stranded parts, Fastplas is waiting for Ford to receive the order or be compensated after Ford workers decided not to operate their machines at the plant in protest of the closure.
"Ten days before announcing the closure, Ford confirmed orders," says Peter Otto Köcher, president of Fastplas, which has been supplying plastic parts for interior, exterior and engine compartment for Ford since 2002 and has 15% of the production destined to the plant.
Parker Hannifin, manufacturer of high pressure hoses, valves and connectors, received orders one day before the end of production announcement, with Turíbio Lombardi, manager of sales and marketing, saying "The shutdown affected 30% of our production of brake and fuel line connections."
Cummins, which devotes 25% of its engine production to Ford, has dismissed 70 workers.
"As the truck market is in full recovery, we believe that in the medium term, other customers will share Ford's share," says Besaliel Botelho, president of Bosch, which makes several electronic components adding that, in the short term, the impact of supply disruption "will be important."
Reynaldo Contreira, president of Wabco, said that 5% of its revenue comes from air compressors and brake cylinders for Ford trucks.
In 2018, truck sales totaled nearly 76,000 units, 46% more than in 2017, with Ford accounting for 12% of the business.
