Chrysler pulls down Hyundai and Mitsubishi Logos

August 28, 2009

Chrysler may be ending partnership in Dundee

Hyundai, Mitsubishi logos are removed from engine plant


Chrysler Group LLC has removed logos of Hyundai and Mitsubishi from the entrance of the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance plant in Dundee, in an apparent move to end the four-year-old partnership and take full control of the factory.

Chrysler spokesmen declined to confirm that the partners' logos were removed or that the partnership is being dissolved. Hyundai and Mitsubishi also had no comment. But employees at the plant, who asked not to be named, said Chrysler executives have communicated their intent to end the alliance.

Chrysler, Hyundai and Mitsubishi broke ground on the $803-million, 1.16-million-square-foot plant in 2003, according to Chrysler's Web site. Production began in October 2005 of 1.8-, 2.0- and 2.4-liter engines for small and midsize vehicles. The plant employs about 400 workers on four 10-hour shifts.

Every employee must have a two-year degree and trade certification or five years of experience in advanced computer machining. The highly automated plant is equipped with automation purchased by Mitsubishi. The engines are based on a Hyundai design. The operation relies heavily on suppliers to perform tasks that Chrysler workers do at the company's other engine factories. The Dundee facility is one of four global alliance sites.
