GM to shutter 2,100 dealers, close 14 plants by 2012

As a part of its bankruptcy filing GM will have to publish the list of more than 2,100 dealers it plans on ending its agreement with in October 2010. While that won’t take place until the end of this week, GM today published a details list of all its U.S. plants and facilities closures.

“The manufacturing plan reduces GM’s total number of assembly, powertrain and stamping facilities in the U.S. from 47 in 2008 to 34 by the end of 2010 and 33 by 2012,” GM said in a statement. “These totals reflect GM’s recently announced plans to build a future small car in the U.S. Under this plan, the New GM will achieve full capacity utilization of its assembly operations in 2011, two years ahead of what was scheduled in its Feb. 17 viability plan submission.”

GM’s Service and Parts Operations (SPO) announced today that it will cease operations at three Parts Distribution Centers in Boston; Columbus, Ohio; and Jacksonville, Fla. – by Dec. 31, 2009.
