By announcing that the Chevy Cruze will no longer be produced at their Lordstown plant starting in March 2019, General Motors has sent shockwaves through the Mahoning Valley region that may last for quite some time.

Unless the company decides to replace the Cruze with the production of another vehicle at the plant, and instead decides to close the Lordstown facility, it’s quite possible that hundreds of automotive suppliers across the state could be affected.
