Chrysler shutdowns were weather-related

by David Zatz on

Sterling Heights Stamping Plant

The shutdowns of numerous Chrysler plants, attributed to supply issues, have in a second missive been blamed on weather. The second shift will report as usual at most of the closed plants, with Brampton, Jefferson North, Sterling Heights Stamping (but not Assembly), Warren, GEMA, Trenton Engine (North and South), Toledo Assembly, Detroit Axle, and Mack (I and II) all opening for the second shift; Belvidere remains closed along with the Chicago and Milwaukee parts depots. The Chrysler headquarters and other parts centers are open, and Chrysler Transport appears to be running as scheduled.
