DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLNS)– The General Motors (GM) Delta Township plant will remain closed through next week.

The plant first shut down early last month due to the global semiconductor shortage.

According to our media partners at Mlive GM also said in a statement Tuesday, Aug. 3, that its truck plants in Flint; Silao, Mexico; and Fort Wayne, Ind., will stop production during the week of Aug. 9, and restart full production on Aug. 16.

The company said in a statement that “the global semiconductor shortage remains complex and very fluid.”

“GM’s global purchasing and supply chain, engineering and manufacturing teams continue to find creative solutions and make strides working with the supply base to minimize the impact to our highest-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles, including full-size trucks and SUVs for our customers,” the statement says.

“The recent scheduling adjustments have been driven by temporary parts shortages caused by semiconductor supply constraints from international markets experiencing COVID-19-related restrictions. This period will provide us with the opportunity to complete unfinished vehicles at the impacted assembly plants and ship those units to dealers to help meet the strong customer demand for our products.”
