Report: Reuse of closed US auto plants on the rise

DETROIT (AP) -- A new report finds about half of all U.S. automotive plants that have closed since 1979 are being reused, with much of that activity coming in the past few years.

The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based nonprofit Center for Automotive Research's report released Thursday finds that of the 267 assembly and parts plants closed during that period, 128 have found or are finding new life.

Forty percent of the sites surveyed were bought for a new use between 2008 and 2010, during which General Motors and Chrysler went through restructuring and bankruptcy reorganization.

The city of Wyoming paid $1 for the former GM metal stamping plant on 36th Street.  The former plant is being razed, and will be replaced by new industrial and commercial development.

Another repurposed plant is in Coopersville.  The former Delphi plant that closed in 2006 is being converted into a milk processing plant.
