Poor Auto Sales Affect Montgomery Plant

January 9,2009 –
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Hyundai Motor Co. has cut production at
its auto assembly plant in Montgomery because of unstable economic
conditions and poor auto sales.
The Korean-based automaker said in a statement Thursday, it had
implemented a "flexible work schedule" for January.
A spokesman for Hyundai declined to elaborate.
The factory opened in 2005 and produces the Sonata sedan and the
Santa Fe SUV.
