New Workhorse in Town

By: Ryan Wolfe / Posted on: May 10, 2019

Shortly after closing the doors in Lordstown, OH, GM is in discussions to sell the facility to an Electric Truck company named Workhorse.  GM made the decision in November to close down four U.S. based production plants, one of which was located in Lordstown, OH and home of the Chevrolet Cruze Sedan.  According to Tom Colton, head of investor relations for Workhorse, the talks are still in the preliminary stages.  There is no time table for speculation of the potential returning jobs to the area.  The United Autoworkers Union (UAW) has a different agenda in mind.  The UAW is trying to push for a reemergence of a petrol powered vehicle plant in the old GM facility, speculated to harbor more employees than Workhorse.
