AM General laying off about 60 workers from northern Indiana military vehicle factory


MISHAWAKA, Indiana — A company spokesman says AM General is laying off about 60 workers from the northern Indiana factory where it builds military vehicles.

Company spokesman Jeff Adams says the layoffs are being made because of production schedule changes at its Military Assembly Plant in Mishawaka (mish-ah-WAH'-kuh).

Adams tells the South Bend Tribune ( ) that AM General is working to finalize several orders for the Humvees built at the factory, including some with international customers.

AM General announced in May it was recalling 200 workers to the military plant. In March, the company recalled about 200 workers at its adjacent civilian factory for production of MV-1 wheelchair-accessible vans.

The company has about 900 total employees at its South Bend headquarters and Mishawaka factories.
