AM General plans to begin recalling about 200 idled workers next month at its northern Indiana assembly plants for military and commercial vehicles.
AM General spokesman Jeff Adams said Saturday in a statement that the employee recall "is in response to a previously planned foreign military order of Humvees and the restart of production operations for the commercial MV-1 vehicle. The MV-1 is the first wheelchair accessible vehicle built from the ground up.
The company had been the vehicle's contract assembler. But last year it bought the company that had developed and made the MV-1, Vehicle Production Group.
AM General had been waiting for the U.S. government to approve foreign military orders before deciding to recall idled workers to its Mishawaka assembly plants.
