General Motors is evaluating whether to acquire its former powertrain manufacturing site in eastern France.
GM Strasbourg, which also includes a small engineering facility, was part of GM’s Powertrain network until the middle of last year.
When GM went through Chapter 11, GM Strasbourg was not taken over into the new GM but left in the hands of Motor Liquidation Company (MLC), the operation established to manage all assets that did not become part of the new GM.
As GM and MLC are two separate companies, GM would have had to invest and acquire GM Strasbourg from MLC.
“GM confirms it is considering to purchase GM Strasbourg, but no decision has been made yet,” noted a statement from the automaker.
