Nitro Production To Be Halted For Three Weeks

The automaker said a month ago it would end the third shift in the Liberty and Nitro factories, but this week changed the cutoff date and said it would halt production of those cars for three weeks during and after Christmas instead of the usual two weeks.

On the brink: Toledo
Leaders say manufacturing remains the answer for city
Thursday, December 6, 2007 3:35 AM




Since 2001, $4.2 billion has been sunk into new auto facilities: $1.2 billion by Chrysler in the Toledo North Assembly Plant, which makes the Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro; $2.1 billion by Chrysler in Toledo Supplier Park, where parts suppliers from Germany, Korea and Canada are connected to the plant that assembles more than 580 Jeep Wranglers a day; and $900 million by General Motors in its Toledo transmission plant to build new 6-speed models.


But in the age of global competition, especially in the auto industry, good news can be fleeting, as it was for Baumhower when he learned that the 750-employee third shift at the North Assembly Plant was being slashed because of weak demand for the Nitro.

"We've still got to build a product that people want," Baumhower said a day after Chrysler announced the layoffs. "That changes our world for awhile, but we'll get through it."
