GM to restart Cruze car production at Ohio plant
Lordstown, Ohio— The GM plant in northeast Ohio that makes the Chevrolet Cruze compact car is ready to restart production halted earlier this week for what was described as a supplier issue.

General Motors Co. said Thursday that work would begin again with the third shift late Thursday night at the complex in Lordstown, near Youngstown.

The company also says employees scheduled for Friday’s first and second shifts should report at their normal times.

Production had stopped Monday night. The Detroit-based automaker did not offer details about the issue with the supplier.

The Lordstown complex includes production and stamping plants. About 4,500 people work there.
