Production of Jeep seats to move to India plant
The Jeep Wrangler may be a stalwart American vehicle that once helped win a war, but its seats will soon be made in India.
Officials at auto parts supplier Johnson Controls Inc.'s facility in Northwood informed union officials there yesterday that the seats workers make there for the Wrangler are being outsourced to India beginning in 2010.
It is unclear how many jobs may be lost at the plant because of the move. The plant also makes instrument panels for the Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro, both of which are assembled at the Toledo Jeep Assembly complex.
