Last gasp of production begins at Fenton Chrysler plant

St. Louis – Workers at Chrysler's north assembly plant in suburban St. Louis are back on the job, but only for a short time.

Today begins the final two weeks of production of Dodge Ram pickup trucks.

The Fenton North plant will close for good on July 10. It had been on track to close later in the year.

Chrysler emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week after a new company was created by the sale of most of Chrysler's assets to Fiat.

Chrysler closed its Fenton South minivan plant last fall.
