Tower Moving from Milwaukee to Mexico

Tower Moving from Milwaukee to Mexico

Thursday, February 12, 2004
 
The Associated Press is reporting that Tower Automotive Inc. will move its frame-assembly operations for the Dodge Ram light truck from its Milwaukee, WI, manufacturing facility to Mexico. The move means that most of the 500 workers on the line will lose their jobs by the end of the 18-month transition. Novi (MI)-based Tower plans to complete the move to a joint-venture partner in Monterrey, Mexico, by mid-2005. Tower has a 40 percent equity interest in the joint venture partner, Metalsa S. de R.L., which also produces truck-frame assemblies.
