Hayes Lemmerz To Close Michigan Plant

Hayes Lemmerz International said it will permanently close its Howell, Mich., manufacturing facility as part of a manufacturing rationalization plan for its North American Wheel Group. The closure is intended to reduce operating costs and increase facility utilization, the company said.

NORTHVILLE, MI — Hayes Lemmerz International said it will permanently close its Howell, Mich., manufacturing facility as part of a manufacturing rationalization plan for its North American Wheel Group. The closure is intended to reduce operating costs and increase facility utilization, the company said.

Hayes Lemmerz will transfer the Howell plant’s production to other manufacturing facilities in the U.S. The plant currently employs approximately 180 people, including hourly and salaried staff, who manufacture aluminum wheels for domestic automotive customers.

According to James Stegemiller, president of Hayes Lemmerz’ North American Wheel Group, the closure is the result of “industry-wide overcapacity.”

Hayes Lemmerz International supplies automotive and commercial highway wheels, brakes, powertrain, suspension, structural and other lightweight components.
