Twinsburg workers to get new jobs in Detroit

by Bill Cawthon on

About 400 hourly employees from the Chrysler stamping plant in Twinsburg, Ohio will be given an opportunity to come to the Motor City and fill positions at the Warren and Sterling stamping plants. Chrysler says 150 of the workers could go to Warren with the balance being assigned to Sterling.

The Twinsburg plant was one of the facilities left behind when the new Chrysler Group LLC was formed from the assets of the former Chrysler LLC. It is now owned by Old Carco LLC, the entity formed to liquidate the old Chrysler’s remaining assets., and is scheduled to be closed by the end of 2009.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
