KANSAS CITY, Mo. — “Downtime” at the Fairfax General Motors plant in Kansas City, Kansas, will continue through mid-March due to supply-chain issues, the company said Friday.

Issues with semiconductor supplies mean the vehicle manufacturer is only producing its most popular models, which include trucks, SUVs and Corvettes.

While the company looks to resolve the issues (which it says are industry-wide) it must extend its reduction in production shifts at some plants, including Fairfax.

Plants in Canada and Mexico are also affected.
