GM may reopen some factories to meet higher demand
General Motors Co.'s North American leader says the company is looking at reopening some shuttered factories because it can't produce certain vehicles fast enough.
North American President Mark Reuss says plants that build the Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles and the Buick LaCrosse sedan are at capacity and can't satisfy demand.
Reuss mentioned an idled factory in Spring Hill, Tenn., but stopped short of saying any plants would be reopened.
He says if he does his job right and restores faith in the GM brands, the company could hire workers again. He says in the short term the company will try to raise output at existing plants.
