Possible Behr America Closure

By  | 

The plant builds a variety of auto parts... including clutches for both the GMC Envoy and Trailblazer.

In the memo the LSJ is citing, Behr America President, Frank Mueller says the plant will close due to low domestic car and SUV sales are to blame... specifically, "The most drastic examples are GMC vehicles, such as Envoy and Trailblazer, whose sales were down more than 30 percent in January and February."

Phone calls News Ten placed to both the Behr plant in Webberville, and the office in Detroit went unreturned.

But, a restaurant owner in Webberville who says Behr employees are regulars says they informed her the closing would take place in July.
