GM announced this week that it would be closing or downsizing many of its plants in North America and cutting as many as 30,000 jobs in an attempt to keep the automotive giant competitive with other car manufacturers.
“The decisions we are announcing today were very difficult to reach because of their impact on our employees and the communities where we live and work,” GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner said in a release.
Johnson Controls, Inc. currently does contract work for GM, making seat frames for several of GM’s sport-utility models. American National Rubber, who also does contract work for GM, was also not found on the list of closing plants.
