Fiat Chrysler is returning to a two-shift plant at its Jeep Toledo Complex after implementing a three-shift schedule last year, The Toledo Blade reports.
Jeep had previously put in place a temporary three-shift work schedule at its Toledo plant in order to boost production of the strong-selling Jeep Cherokee mid-size crossover. An FCA spokesperson explained the shift wasn’t a true third shift, but consisted of existing workers already employed at the plant, so no employees will lose their jobs.
The Toledo plant may be in for a minor mix-up in coming years as FCA works to implement its new truck- and crossover-intensive business plan. Production of the Cherokee is expected to move in order to make room for a new Jeep pickup, while the next-generation Jeep Wrangler will also be built there.
