Nissan will suspend operations at its Infiniti Powertrain Plant in Decherd in March 2023.
The plant was opened in 2014 at a cost of $319 million at the height of Nissan and Mercedes-Benz’s engine-sharing collaboration.
The Infiniti Powertrain Plant was originally built to produce up to 250,000 engines a year but only built 50,000 engines in 2021.
Officials say they are looking at reassigning current workers.
