The Brampton line resumes on Monday after a two-week pause.
Windsor builds the company’s minivans.
Stellantis has just lost a court case that would have forced a chipmaker to provide chips for one of its suppliers.
The global chip shortage is still wreaking havoc the world over. Closer to home, Stellantis will resume production at its Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant next Monday after being down for two weeks. As of now, the Windsor, Ontario plant will be idled and hopefully return to business on May 3rd.
“Stellantis continues to work closely with our suppliers to mitigate the manufacturing impacts caused by the various supply chain issues facing our industry,” the automaker said in a statement, as reported by Automotive News.
Unfortunately for Stellantis, they may soon have to face another temporary shutdown. The recently formed auto giant attempted to legally force chipmaker NXP to supply JVIS-USA, one of its module suppliers. Earlier today, a federal judge denied the emergency order. These components, with the chips, are for HVAC systems. They were destined for the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit where the Jeep Grand Cherokee is assembled. These same modules were necessary for the Dodge Challenger and Charger, and the Chrysler 300.
As of now, the Jefferson plant may face a shutdown within the first 10 days of May.
