Chrysler is hiring 200 people for its Toledo Jeep Complex in Ohio

Article by Anita Panait, on March 15, 2013

Chrysler Group is hiring 200 people at its Jeep plant in Toledo, Ohio, where it is producing its Wrangler sports utility vehicle.  Chrysler needs to spike production at its Toledo plant due to an increased demand for the Wrangler and the Wrangler Unlimited, according to Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson. The new hires will start working at the plant on April.

According to Tinson, Chrysler will hire 130 workers who will offer "tag relief" for co-workers who need to take a break from the assembly line. The Toledo Wrangler plant currently employs two shifts on the assembly line, each working about 10 hours. Chrysler presently has no plans to add a third shift since the paint shop of the Toledo is already operating at capacity, even after adding a third eight-hour shift on April 1.

The production of Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited at the Toledo plant reached a record in 2012, after exceeding 200,000 vehicles. Chrysler sold 141,669 Wranglers in the United States in 2012, reflecting a 16-percent jump from 2011. Chrysler’s Toledo Jeep Complex is divided into main parts.

One of them builds the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited, while the other one is currently closed to prepare for production of the Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee sports utility vehicle will be replacing the Jeep Liberty, which was discontinued in August 2012. Chrysler will start the production of the Cherokee in late May, according to Chrysler chief executive Sergio Marchionne.
