GM Restarts Pickup Production

Flint Assembly in Michigan, Silao Assembly in Mexico and Fort Wayne Assembly in Indiana will restart full production Monday. Flint had been operating on only one shift this week, and Fort Wayne and Silao were idled. The chip shortage has hampered production for GM and other automakers since early this year. GM has prioritized chips for its lucrative full-size pickup and SUV segments over crossovers and sedans resulting in additional downtime for those segments.
