Plymouth, Michigan -- Johnson Controls Inc. will close its Lakeshore, Ontario, plant by the end of March, cutting 110 jobs.
The facility moulds overhead systems for Chrysler Group llc, but lost its contracts for the plant, said spokeswoman Debra Lacey. The company, with its auto interiors facility based in Plymouth, Michigan, told workers 20 Jan that it would close the site by mid to late March.
Canadian Auto Workers Local 444 president Rick Laporte told local media that he believes the 90 union members at Lakeshore will be able to get jobs at the nearby Chrysler assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario.
