The fact of the plant closing should be no surprise. GM announced it would along with eight other facilities back in November.
They said mid-2006 at the time, and they say this closing is right on schedule.
It means about 430 employees will be laid off. The Chevy SSR they make will no longer be produced. The employees that work at the plant are on temporary layoff, as they were for so many weeks of 2005, until February 13.
When they come back they'll produce a final batch of vehicles, and then shut down the line.
