GM to skip summer factory shutdowns due to demand

This is fantastic news. Bailing out GM wasn’t easy or popular but when you see this, you have to be thankful for the tough call Obama made to keep GM going.

GM says nine of its 11 assembly plants will continue to operate during the traditional shutdown period from June 28 to July 9.

Most of GM’s U.S. stamping and powertrain plants will also work to support assembly operations.

GM assembly plants working through the traditional summer shutdown are—Arlington, Texas, Bowling Green, Kentucky, Detroit Hamtramck, Michigan, Fairfax, Kansas, Flint, Michigan, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Lansing Delta Township, Michigan, Lansing Grand River, Michigan and Wentzville, Missouri.

The decision is expected to generate up to 56,000 additional vehicles. Those include Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac cars, crossovers, and trucks.
