A compelling product line-up, a renewed focus on its core brand and the misfortunes of its main competitors have surely helped Ford, the only carmaker not to request US government financial support, to weather the gloomy business environment which saw the bankruptcies of its cross-town rivals. 

Ford’s turnaround plan, based on an aggressive restructuring of its production network, employment levels and labour agreements, is well under way, although the reduction of its massive debt burden still represents one of the car maker’s biggest challenges. 

The carmaker’s purchasing strategy is certainly influenced by the implementation of “One Ford” as a generalised plan to stimulate synergy savings across the organisation and on the product side with a portfolio of truly global cars, which represent very attractive programs for the supply base. The re-organisation of its internal production network, the disposal of the remaining Automotive Components Holdings plants and the difficult management of its former supplier arm, Visteon, have additional implications on the car maker’s purchasing strategy.

In addition to the above, this report analyses how the supply base consolidation plan is being carried out by the car maker, the latest updates on Ford’s Aligned Business Framework and the sourcing strategy at a regional level for major global sourcing areas. The approach to electrification, R&D focus, technology biases and quality management are also examined through the supplier’s lens. Throughout the report we describe an array of business practices, collected directly from Ford’s current suppliers, which help you understand what to expect when dealing with the car maker on a global basis. Thanks to our authentic internal research “Supplying Ford” represents an excellent support strategic decision-making for the medium-to-long-term and a barometer of the current state of relations between Ford and its large supply base.
