Third Shift to Begin at Dodge Truck Plant

May 17, 2004

AUBURN HILLS, MI –Chrysler has added a third shift at its Warren truck plant. The move will gradually put 1,000 laid-off union workers back on the job as Chrysler prepares the factory for two new model launches, according to the Detroit News newspaper. Chrysler is investing $35 million to increase capacity at the Warren facility by 20 percent, to about 338,000 trucks a year. The plant builds full-size Dodge Ram pickups and midsize Dodge Dakota pickups. The automaker is gearing up to launch a redesigned Dakota in Warren this summer and a new mid-size truck for Mitsubishi Motors Corp. next year.
