Amid the surmounting suspicion of General Motors possibly shutting down its Ellesmere Port plant in England or the in one Bochum, Germany, GM Europe chief Karl-Friedrich Stracke has gone on record that both plants will remain open. For now, at least.
Stracke proclaimed that both plants are secure until the end of 2014. Whether these are early warning signs for plant workers to begin filling out job applications or not is beyond our immediate knowledge. But if GM Europe can find a solution to turn a profit in an overly saturated and depressed market while managing to keep both plants open, then the more power to them.
