Spotsylvania GM Powertrain Plant to Close Temporarily Amid Sales Lull

from The Free Lance-Star:

General Motors will temporarily close its GM Powertrain plant in Spotsylvania County from June 1 to July 12.

A national slowdown in the production of GM cars and trucks has trickled down to the Spotsylvania plant, which produces torque converter clutches for automatic transmissions.

Most GM plants in North America will be temporarily closed at some point this year, said John Raut, a GM spokesman in Baltimore.

In April, GM announced that it will produce 190,000 fewer vehicles this year than anticipated.
Assembly plant closings were announced at the time, with information on transmission and Powertrain facilities to follow.
