GM says production at Ohio plant to end Jan. 29


Mansfield, Ohio — General Motors Co. says production at a stamping plant in Ohio is expected to end Jan. 29.

The automaker announced in May that it would shutter the Mansfield/Ontario Metal Center plant. Since then, about 600 workers have retired or taken buyouts and about 100 have accepted transfers to other GM facilities.

The factory still has about 420 hourly and salaried staffers, and 130 temporary workers.

GM spokesman Tom Mock says that after production ends, a few workers will be retained and shifted to operations and maintenance jobs until the plant’s expected closure in June.

The factory opened in 1955.
