Plant lists to be closed

by David Zatz on

Detroit News dug the list of plants to be closed out of court documents. 

The newly renovated Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, which makes the Avenger and Sebring, will be closed in or before December 2010. 

Conner Avenue, Detroit Axle, St. Louis North, Kenosha Engine, and Twinsburg Stamping will all be closed. 

Conner Avenue and St. Louis North are not surprising candidates to be left out of the “New Chrysler” since St. Louis has already been closed and Conner Avenue’s sale was announced some time ago. Some have expected Twinsburg to be closed as well, and Kenosha production will be replaced by a new Pentastar V6 plant. 

During the bankruptcy, Chrysler will cut its marketing budget by 50%, given that there will be no production. 

If the “New Chrysler” is not created within 60 days, some limited production may restart.
