General Motors will idle the Fort Wayne, Indiana truck plant for two weeks at the end of March.
Numerous issues over the last few years have wreaked havoc on new vehicle production, forcing manufacturing slow-downs and pauses that left many dealership lots empty. Now, General Motors will implement another temporary production pause at a major pickup truck plant in Indiana. Only this time, it’s not because of supply chain problems. It seems GM now has too many trucks.
As reported by The Detroit News, the automaker will idle production for two weeks at its large Fort Wayne Assembly location, starting March 27. This is to help “maintain optimal inventory levels” according to a letter obtained by the news outlet. The Fort Wayne plant builds half-ton versions of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, two of the most popular vehicles sold in North America.
