Chrysler Restarts Production in Seven More Plants

Things are getting back to normal after the deal emerged from bankruptcy and completed the strategic alliance with Fiat and is now planning to resume production in most facilities its owns. After reopening the Viper production plant on June 15, Chrysler now announces it will resume volume production of vehicles in seven more North American assembly plants during the week of June 29.

Just as expected, all seven plants are producing cars belonging to Chrysler's now-core brands. Here's the detailed list of plants projected to reopen their doors next week:

  • Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (Sterling Heights, MI) – Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger
  • Warren Truck Assembly Plant (Warren, MI) – Dodge Ram and Dodge Dakota
  • St. Louis North Assembly Plant (Fenton, MO) – Dodge Ram
  • Toledo Supplier Park (Toledo, OH) – Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Brampton Assembly Plant (Brampton, Ontario, Canada) – Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Challenger
  • Windsor Assembly Plant (Windsor, Ontario, Canada ) – Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Toluca Assembly Plant (Toluca, Mexico) – Dodge Journey and Chrysler PT Cruiser

Chrysler spokeswoman Dianna Gutierrez earlier this week revealed that the American manufacturer plans to reopen all its production facilities by the end of June, with Sergio Marchionne, the new CEO, confirming Chrysler's plants are to receive Fiat technology in the upcoming months.

"Chrysler Group’s Powertrain and Stamping facilities that supply these assembly plants will also be operating. All Chrysler Group plants will be closed during a previously announced two-week Summer Break the weeks of July 13 and 20. Re-start of production at other Chrysler Group assembly plants will be announced at a later date," the company said in a release.
