GM: Closing 7 factories and laying off 15,000 workers

GM: Closing 7 factories and laying off 15,000 workers

In the cold wave of the car market, GM adopted a strategy similar to Ford's, namely, closing factories and laying off employees.

On November 26, General Motors said it would cut production of unsalable models and lay off North American employees as the car market shrank. According to foreign media reports, GM will lay off 15% of its employees by the end of next year, involving nearly 15,000 people, including 25% of its executives. At the same time, GM will close seven production bases around the world, involving three plants in Osawa, Ontario, Canada, Detroit, Ohio, and Warren.

GM's plans to cut jobs and close factories have provoked outrage from President Trump and even threatened to cancel GM's subsidies for electric vehicles. However, in the biggest restructuring in the last decade, GM CEO Mary Bola has shown considerable reform determination.

In fact, as the first female CEO in GM's history, Mary Bola has been trying to build a "fortress" financial structure for GM. From selling Opel out of the European market, to exiting South Africa, East Africa, India and South Korea market one after another, to investing in emerging areas such as self-driving and mobile travel, GM, led by Bora, has contracted its global business scope and rapidly moved towards emerging industries and forward-looking markets.

Today, GM's financial performance in North America and China continues to be good, especially in the Chinese market, GM's investment returns continue to hit record highs.

Even so, GM, which is increasingly sensitive to the market and has a sense of crisis, has not been pursuing the expansion of its size in the global market, but has put streamlining its business and reducing its costs first.

Compared with Ford being forced to lay off employees and shut down its car business because of its financial crisis, GM's approach is more like an initiative before the crisis.

With the coming storm, it may be beneficial to prepare for self-protection in response to the cruel market.

      Purolator Filters, a division of MANN+HUMMEL, announced that the company will be kicking off its 100-year anniversary celebration at this year’s Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX). 
      In 2023, Purolator will be commemorating 100 years of “Purifying Your World.” In 1923, Ernest Sweetland developed and patented the first oil-filtration system, calling it the “Purolator,” short for the words “pure oil later.” As years went on, the company continued to evolve, manufacture and distribute filters, such as air, cabin air and fuel filters for the automotive industry. 
      The global filtration company MANN+HUMMEL acquired Purolator Filters in 2012. Today, Purolator has more than 2,000 filtration part numbers for automotive, light-truck and heavy-duty applications, and continues to work on product innovation and design.
      “The company maintains and extends its position as a leader in the filtration market by producing top-quality products, offering first-class service and revolutionizing the future of filtration technology,” the company said in a news release. 
      Most recently, Purolator has maintained these assurances with the creation of PurolatorBOSSpremium cabin air filters with Febreze Freshness. With a focus on filtering out virus aerosols, this product also blocks and controls odors, while preventing 99% of fine particles from entering a vehicle’s cabin, according to the company.  
      “Purolator’s goal to strive for quality and innovative products began in 1923, and still continues nearly a century later,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing for the automotive aftermarket with MANN+HUMMEL. “We are thrilled to celebrate our 100-year milestone in 2023. Purolator has been able to maintain its role as a market leader with leading-edge technology and global manufacturing best practices. Through continued hard work and diligence, Purolator will thrive for another 100 years.”
      After a century of innovation, the celebration will kick off at AAPEX booth A1843. AAPEX is scheduled for Nov. 1-3 in Las Vegas.
