N. Ind. factory set to resume Humvee production
MISHAWAKA -- A northern Indiana company says the shutdown of its factory that makes Humvees for the military will continue until late November.
AM General began what it at first called two-week layoffs of workers from its military assembly plant in Mishawaka on Oct. 1. The layoffs of an undisclosed number of workers have since been extended three times.
The South Bend Tribune reports the company says workers will return to the factory on Nov. 26 to fill existing orders for Humvees.
Company spokesman Jeff Adams says AM General continues negotiating on possible international orders that could further extend Humvee production. The company said when the shutdown started that it needed time to obtain needed customer and U.S. government approvals.
