GM to Reopen 2 Plants
Sept. 24, 2021—General Motors on Thursday confirmed it will reopen two of its U.S. plants that had been temporarily closed due to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage.
According to The Detroit News, GM's Wentzville, Mo., midsize truck plant will reopen the week of Sept. 27 and its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant in Michigan will resume production the following week.
"Although the situation remains complex and very fluid, we remain confident in our team’s ability to continue finding creative solutions to minimize the impact on our highest-demand and capacity constrained vehicles,” GM spokesman David Barnas said in a statement.
The Wentzville plant makes the Chevrolet Colorado and Express as well as the GMC Canyon and Savana. The Lansing plant produces the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.
