The slow road back

And so it begins with the NUMMI supplier shut-downs: Stockton Auto Parts Supplier to Lay Off Entire Workforce. 159 good jobs gone (and as a sign of how unexpected this auto collapse was, note that this facility just opened in 2008). Kyoho is only 1 of 10 NUMMI parts suppliers in San Joaquin County.

At least this recycled bottle plant is encouraging. It is going to take at least 50 of these types of announcements to make up for what we are losing with NUMMI. We will get there, but there’s a long slog ahead.

Update: Accidently wrote the company’s name was Kyoto not Kyoho in the original post. Climate change on the mind I guess.
