Canadian plants reopen

by David Zatz on

Chrysler’s Windsor minivan plant and its Brampton car plant in Ontario are both operating today, following a parts shortage that caused a temporary closure starting on April 1 and April 2 respectively. The plants, together, employ around 8,000 people. 

A provincial court ordered supplier Transcast Precision to provide Chrysler with any parts already made as well as its tooling for engine and transmission brackets; Transcast had stopped delivering parts to the plants, and hid the tooling when Chrysler tried to install it in the Etobicoke, Toronto casting plant.
