Van production resuming at Mishawaka plant

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – AM General is restarting the production of specially designed vans for the disabled at its northern Indiana factory.

The resumed production of the MV-1 wheelchair-accessible vans at the Mishawaka factory comes about six months after AM General took over the Michigan company that designed the vehicle.

The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1kJoFoM ) AM General is holding a ceremony Tuesday for the restarted production line.

AM General had previously built the vans under contract with the Vehicle Production Group of Allen Park, Mich., before it suspended operations last year.

About 200 laid-off workers have been recalled by AM General this year for the restart of van production and foreign military orders of Humvees.
