LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — General Motors officials say the Ohio plant that makes the Chevrolet Cruze is shutting down for a week in August to maintain the balance between supply and demand.

The Vindicator newspaper (http://bit.ly/12MVdkH ) reports that the Lordstown plant near Youngstown already had its typical summer shutdown at the beginning of July. But GM announced it will shut again starting Aug. 26 to "align the product with market demands."

The Cruze set an all-time sales record in June, with GM selling 32,871 units. It has sold 264,843 Cruzes through the first half of 2013.

Glenn Johnson, president of United Auto Workers Local 1112 in Lordstown, says the union trusts the company to make the right decision regarding supply of the successful Cruze.
