South Bend-based AM General LLC says it could soon recall up to 200 idled workers at a plant in Mishawaka. A company spokesman says the work involves an anticipated federal contract for production of Humvees. Business at AM General is picking up. In January, the manufacturer announced 200 workers would be recalled at another St. Joseph County operation to produce MV-1.
Last week, AM General detailed a Canadian distribution deal for the handicapped-accessible vehicle.
