HD Closes down York, Pa plant ?
« on: May 19, 2022, 01:52:44 PM »
Suspends operation for Two weeks

In the statement, Harley states that “this decision, taken out of an abundance of caution, is based on information provided by a third-party supplier to Harley-Davidson late on Tuesday (5/17) concerning a regulatory compliance matter relating to the supplier’s component part.” 

The statement does not give further information about the exact nature of said issue, nor regarding which supplier and/or part is involved. In any case, it’s clearly something serious enough to result in what will be at least a two-week production halt. 

Not good.

 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper story indicated the shutdown also affects the H-D plant in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

I suspect it is a compliance issue related to emissions.
