Nominate Jefferson North Assembly Plant - Is it at or near 100% capacity?

Jefferson North Assembly Plant - Is it at or near 100% capacity?

Just curious. Tried to search for answer but couldn't find it. Perhaps Marlon can chime in.

Are they running two 10 hour shifts 6 days a week??? I know the GC has been very successful, just wondering if they are maxing out the production capacity at JNAP?

Re: Jefferson North Assembly Plant - Is it at or near 100% capacity?

Yea, it's been mentioned that things are pretty much moving at capacity. There was some chatter about potentially using another plant, either for increased production of the JGC, or maybe off-loading Durango or whatever. Who knows if that will happen. There is both good and bad about engaging a second facility...

Re: Jefferson North Assembly Plant - Is it at or near 100% capacity?

100% capacity would be running 24/7.

90% I'd say.

We're running two 10 hour shifts 6 days a week and one 10 hour shift on Sunday. Sometimes two 10 hour shifts on Sunday but that hasn't happened lately. It would have to be "voluntary".

We're tired. So forget the volunteering...

We built around 1,230 yesterday.

Working in manufacturing myself...I would call it at capacity. You need the downtime for maintenance etc.

10 hours shifts! I hope you alternate jobs and get plenty of break time during the shift.

That's one new Grand Cherokee (or Durango as the case may be) born every minute!
