Thai media reported the sad farewells of Thai auto industry workers as their employment at General Motors came to an end. 

 

GM who make Chevrolet are closing down in Thailand after 27 years. They were the first in their automotive sector and produced cars out of their plant on the eastern seaboard in Rayong. 

 

Staff took to Facebook to record their last day with messages to keep fighting and meet again one day. 

 

Likit Chuenchom struck a positive note saying: Let's begin again. 

 

GM have stopped production in Thailand selling out to Great Wall Motors of China, notes Thaivisa. 

 

Daily Mail said that 1,500 redundancies are expected.

Times are changing, motor vehicle manufacturers closing down around the world, not very profitable for some. If Chevy couldn't compete here in Thailand, they have no hope.

This was announced way back .....  and their after sales service lacked dismally. 

New car sales have crashed world wide and expect others to follow. 

In Australia, Holden shut down, Ford closed 2013 but does import only.

GM decided that they were getting out of right hand drive vehicles.  Holden, Chevvy.  Not news.
