General Motors

General Motors’ major Mexico plant will halt production next week due to supply chain issues, the automaker said Friday.

The automaker will suspend work in Silao starting August 29 and intend to resume on September 5.

The plant makes GMC and Chevrolet pick-up trucks.

Production at the automaker’s other three full-size truck plants in North America is not impacted. Its Flint, Michigan, truck assembly plant will be operating additional shifts this weekend.

The automaker also said its Bowling Green Assembly in Kentucky will be idled next week because of a temporary parts supply issue that is not related to chips.

“General Motors is working actively with its base of suppliers to resolve issues as they arise to meet customer demand,” the automaker said.

It added that North America production has been stable since the third quarter of 2021, but supply chain interruptions have continued.
