GM's DMAX truck engine plant lays off employees

ABR Staff Writer Published 26 December 2011

Employees from Moraine-based DMAX truck engine plant's personnel department have been laid off in an effort to reduce work force burden to the plant, according to General Motors (GM). GM is a partner in the joint venture that operates DMAX.

The GM spokeswoman Kim Carpenter was quoted by the Dayton Daily News as saying they did reduce the size of their on-site personnel department, to better align their staffing to meet the needs of their business.

According to Carepenter, the reduction had affected salaried staff but not the hourly production workers.

The Dayton News has reported that the company, however, had not specified the numbers of job cuts but had revealed that the people who had lost their job were eligible for severance pay.

The Moraine DMAX operates under a joint ventured partnership of GM and Isuzu Motors.

The company manufactures Duramax diesel engines that are equipped in GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks, in addition to the GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express vans.
