Chrysler to Reopen Seven More Assembly Plants by end of June

About a week after emerging from bankruptcy protection and finalizing a deal with the Fiat Group, Chrysler Group LLC confirmed today that in addition to the reopening of the Dodge Viper's Conner Avenue factory in Detroit on Monday, the firm plans to resume production of vehicles at seven more assembly plants in North America by the end of June. According to Chrysler, two factories are in Michigan, one is in Missouri and one in Ohio, while the automaker will also restart production at its assembly plants in Windsor and Brampton, Canada and in Toluca, Mexico.

"A restart of production at other Chrysler Group assembly plants will be announced at a later date," the company said in a statement. Chrysler had shut down all of its North American operations for a period of two months when it entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May, 2009.
