Chrysler to Bring Back Second Shift at Belvidere, Illinois, Plant
"We are taking this action in response to increasing demand for our most fuel-efficient products," said Michael J. Accavitti, President and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "However, we are cautious about the continued volatility in the industry and will monitor demand in order to respond to market conditions."
The increased second shift production will add approximately 850 employees at the Belvidere facility. This action is in addition to the more than 50,000 units recently added to production plans at other Chrysler Group plants.
