Parts shortages rack Chrysler plants

by David Zatz on

Chrysler has cancelled its first shifts at numerous facilities today, blaming “parts shortages.” While no details were given, the decision implies local transportation problems due to inclement weather. Plants closed run the gamut, with assembly (Jefferson North, Sterling Heights, Toledo, Warren Truck, Brampton), engine (GEMA, Mack I and II, Trenton North and South), and other supply plants all affected (Detroit Axle, Toledo Machining, Warren and Sterling Heights stamping).

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
