Colorado and Canyon production in Shreveport halted due to Japan earthquake

Colorado and Canyon production in Shreveport halted due to Japan earthquake

Posted on 17. Mar, 2011 by in Business



General Motors has announced that production at its Shreveport, Louisiana manufacturing facility will be suspended on March 21.  A parts shortage, spurred by the 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan last week, will halt production of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon for the foreseeable future. The release goes on to note that vehicle supply at dealers remains sufficient for the near future to meet customer demand. No date has been set for production to resume, and depending on the situation in Japan, may take a considerable amount of time.

Here’s the statement GM released today:


GM update on the impact of the earthquake in Japan


DETROIT — GM has suspended production at Shreveport Assembly in Louisiana for the week of March 21 due to a parts shortage resulting from the crisis in Japan. We will resume production at Shreveport as soon as possible, and at this point, we have sufficient vehicles to meet customer demand. Employees should use specified plant communication hotlines for updates about future production schedules.

At all other plants in North America, we continue to run normal operations.

Like all global automakers, we will continue to follow the events in Japan closely to determine the business impact, working across the organization to maximize flexibility, supply the most critical operations, and effectively manage cost.

Our hearts and prayers are with the people of Japan and their families as they work to recover from this disaster.

    Why can’t GM get parts from some where here in the USA and get American jobs back to American people?

    because Americans want to much money to ru the work. I’ll bet if you had the usa build the parts, prices for that truck would jump atleast $3000.
