GM Production
(2008-06-23)
(wgvu) - General Motors Corp. says it will further cut
production of trucks and sport utility vehicles from the summer
through the end of the year.
Spokesman Chris Lee says GM will cut shifts, reduce assembly
line speeds and temporarily idle seven factories because of
declining consumer demand for the truck-based vehicles.
The biggest cut will take place at the company's Janesville,
Wis., factory that makes large SUVs. It will be idled the weeks of
July 14 and 21, plus it will be shut down another 10 weeks through
the end of the year.
Lee said Monday the other affected plants are in Oshawa,
Ontario; Silao, Mexico; Arlington, Texas; Moraine, Ohio; Fort
Wayne, Ind.; and Shreveport, La.
