LORDSTOWN - General Motors Co. Lordstown Complex returned to production of Chevrolet Cruze compact cars Monday, a week after a part issue idled the giant complex.
Production is planned for the rest of this week at the 4,500-worker complex, spokesman Tom Mock said.
The complex will close next week for its traditional holiday shutdown before resuming operation Jan. 3, he said.
Production ended after shortened afternoon shifts on Dec. 12 due to an issue with a supplier part. GM hasn't identified the part, supplier or concern, but it reportedly was linked to struts that were making excessive road noise in low-speed conditions.
The complex typically strives to make about 1,200 Cruzes per day on three shifts. There was no word about whether GM planned to make up the lost production.
Lordstown was shuttered for a week starting the end of November to reduce the supply of unsold Cruzes.
