Chrysler hiring 200 at Ohio plant to boost Wrangler output

March 14, 2013



DETROIT (Reuters) -- Chrysler Group will hire 200 people at its Ohio Jeep plant that makes the rugged Wrangler SUV, the company said on Thursday.

Demand for the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited has prompted Chrysler to find ways to increase production at the Toledo, Ohio plant, said Jodi Tinson, a Chrysler spokeswoman.

The new hires will be in place on April 1.


Tinson said Chrysler will hire 130 workers that will offer "tag relief" for colleagues who need to take a break from the assembly line.

There are two shifts on the assembly line at the Toledo Wrangler plant, each working about 10 hours. There are presently no plans to add a third shift, because the paint shop of the plant is already at capacity, even after adding a third eight-hour shift on April 1.

Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited production at the Toledo plant rose to more than 200,000 last year, a record. Of those, U.S. sales accounted for 141,669 Wranglers, a 16-percent rise from the previous year.

Chrysler has two parts of what it calls its Toledo Jeep Complex, one that makes the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, and one that is now shut to prepare for production of the Jeep Cherokee.

The Cherokee, an SUV, is replacing the Jeep Liberty, which was discontinued in August. Production of the Cherokee will begin in late May, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said two weeks ago.
