I'm sure most of you have heard by now that GM has plans to close several of their automotive plans as they look to cut back on their sedan lineup. As many as 5 factories and 14,000 jobs may be lost, but talks on going with various workers unions. GM recently put $265 million into the Fairfax plant, for retooling it for the XT4. It seems safe for now but that will be dependent on the success of this new model launch. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansasci...ing-union.html
I was concerned that China would be the next big producer for markets like North America but slowly its been shifting more to Mexico and closer regions. At least for the short-term it won't mean anything to worry about with the trade war.
