DETROIT, Michigan: General Motors Company announced this week that it would reduce the manufacturing of trucks at its North American facilities due to the continuing worldwide shortage of semiconductor chips.

The Detroit-headquartered vehicle manufacturer stated that the Flint Truck Assembly facility, which manufactures the Chevy Silverado HD and Sierra HD by GMC, will operate only one shift daily beginning next week.

General Motors also announced the idling of its Indiana-based Fort Wayne Assembly facility, which manufactures the Chevy Silverado 1500 as well as the GMC Sierra 1500 pickups.

General Motors' Mexico-based Silao Assembly facility, also manufacturing the Cheyenne, GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500, would additionally be stopping manufacturing next week. The three facilities are projected to restart regular manufacturing beginning in the second week of August.
