GM Shreveport gets order for 849 Hummers

GM Shreveport gets order for 849 Hummers

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) – General Motors has received a fleet order for 849 Hummers, so the Shreveport plant won’t shut down for two weeks in May, after all.

GM spokesman Otie McKinley says the plant has a month to build the H3s and H3Ts. He says Hummer production will resume April 12, and the order must be completed by May 13.

He says the plant will be staffed at full production during that time.

The company had planned a two-week shutdown to begin the first week of May.

GM halted production of the H3 in January, hoping current supplies would sustain dealers until a proposed deal to sell the Hummer brand to a Chinese company was signed. But that deal fell through, along with hopes of producing another Hummer in Shreveport.
