GM Will Idle Indiana Plant for Two Weeks
General Motors said it will idle its Fort Wayne Assembly full-size pickup plant in Indiana next month for two weeks as the automaker works to manage inventory levels. The plant downtime is “an effort to maintain optimal inventory levels with our dealerships,” a spokesman said.
“Our production is up over the past month while demand remains fairly consistent, leading to an increase in inventory,” the spokesman said. “Therefore, as we stated on our earnings call, we are going to proactively manage inventory levels, including plant downtime.”
