Evart Updates

This website is to keep Vitro Automotive Glass employees in Evart, Michigan apprised of our ongoing furloughs and our planned closure of the facility on June 30, 2020.

 

Dear Friends,

 

Thank you for visiting the site. I hope everyone is continuing to do well and staying safe. These are very difficult times across the country, and we look forward to returning to “normal” one day soon.

 

This continues to be a very difficult time, as well, for the U.S. auto industry. The economic impact from the coronavirus – on top of the existing challenges we faced and increased competition that flooded the market with too much glass – is creating devastating effects for many.

 

As a result, we have been forced to make the difficult decision that we intend to permanently close the Evart operations effective June 30. We understand this is difficult news, but we are committed to help support you and your family through this transition and are going to make sure you have access to assistance from the state and other agencies that is available.

 

We will continue to keep this site updated as we get more information throughout this process. I respect and appreciate all you do.

 

Sincerely,

 

Salvador Minarro
President

“WARN” Notices

We issued furloughs several weeks ago with plans to return to regular operations within weeks. However, the unprecedented disruption to the U.S. auto market and the severity of the economic impact from the coronavirus response has forced us to the difficult decision that we intend to permanently close the Evart operations effective June 30.

 

Note:  Depending on automakers’ schedules for restarting production, there may be an opportunity for us to temporarily restart operation for a limited period of time before closing on June 30. It is unlikely that any such limited restart would result in us revisiting the closure
