Buffalo's American Axle Plant May Close

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – American Axle may be closing its Buffalo plant on East Delavan Avenue.

The "Automotive News" cites two sources who say the company will close the facility as part of a reduction of its US manufacturing capacity. Company officials tell the Detroit publication that no decision has yet been made.

In September, the company decided to send production of new-generation Camaro axles to a plant in Mexico instead of to the Buffalo facility.
