General Motors is planning to shut down the Bowling Green Assembly Plant for another week in early December in another attempt to keep inventories in line with demand. AP is reporting the plant will be idled the week of December 1st and will reopen the following week.
The Bowling Green Assembly Plant builds both Chevrolet Corvettes and Cadillac XLRs. GM previously said that Cadillac XLR production would be shut down that week. The plant employs 900 workers.
The assembly plant was idled already once this fall with production halted during the week of October 6-12th. Corvette sales are down 9.5% through the first nine months this year.
