About 380 workers are losing their jobs around the end of October when their companies no longer will supply parts or services for the Chevrolet Malibu at the General Motors Fairfax Assembly Plant.
Inteva Products, which has a plant at 144 W. 23rd Ave. in North Kansas City, will lay off about 180 employees. A company spokeswoman said Inteva’s contract expires at the end of October for cockpit assembly of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse.
The Woodbridge Sequencing Center at 7601 N.W. 107th Terrace in Kansas City will lay off nearly 200 employees. Its Malibu contract to assemble certain vehicle parts expires Oct. 31. About 100 employees will continue to work on Buick parts, a plant spokesman said.
Both companies filed Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notices with the state of Missouri.
GM’s Fairfax facility in Kansas City, Kan., is introducing a redesigned 2016 Malibu. The plant continues to build the Buick LaCrosse.
