March 30, 2022—General Motors is temporarily halting production at its Fort Wayne, Indiana, assembly plant due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage.

This is the first time this year the automaker is halting production of one of its plants. According to a report from The Detroit News, all of GM's North American production facilities have been on a normal schedule since Nov. 1 of last year.

The Fort Wayne facility produces both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. The shutdown will begin April 4 and will last for two weeks.

“Overall, we have seen better consistency in semiconductor supply through the first quarter compared to last year as a whole," GM spokesman Dan Flores said in a statement per the report. "This has translated into improvement in our production and deliveries during the first three months of the year. However, there is still uncertainty and unpredictability in the semiconductor supply base, and we are actively working with our suppliers to mitigate potential issues moving forward.”
