Nemak has announced that it plans to cease manufacturing operations in Windsor by mid-2020.

They say the decision is a result of the early phase-out of an export program with a customer in China, which is expected to bring capacity utilization at the plant to less than 10% by 2020.

“Given our outlook on capacity utilization and volumes in Windsor, we have made the decision to end production at this facility,” said Armando Tamez, CEO of Nemak. “We are deeply grateful to the many people who have contributed to our business in Windsor over the years, and we will make every effort to support them during this period.”

The plant has 270 employees and produces engine blocks.
