Boom has replaced gloom as production hits a 13-year peak

Boom has replaced gloom as production hits a 13-year peak
These are boom times in North America, but it’s also crunch time — as in capacity crunch.
Production last month hit a level not reached since 2000, and there’s no end in sight.
Carmakers are squeezing more units out of existing plants, and supplier bosses admit they have to quit stalling and start making long-delayed capital investments.
Not only is production rising to meet local demand, but some carmakers are ramping up North American plants as global export centers. It’s full speed ahead for the industry — a complicated mix of opportunities and challenges.
