GM Adds 60,000 Vehicles To Production, Re-Hires 1,350
DETROIT (AP) — General Motors Co. says it will add 60,000 vehicles to its production in the third and fourth quarters, spurred partly by demand from the government's Cash for Clunkers program.
The automakers says it will bring back about 1,350 laid-off workers in the U.S. and Canada to bolster production at factories.
GM says it will add a shift to its CAMI factory in Ingersoll, Ontario, where the new Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain midsize crossover vehicles are made.
The company's Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plant, where the Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 are made, also will see additional shifts.
GM says production also may be increased at other factories, including those that make the Chevrolet HHR small wagon.
