GM in talks to sell Indianapolis stamping plant

City and union officials say General Motors has found a potential buyer for an Indianapolis stamping plant that it has planned
to shut down.

About 650 people now work at the factory on the city's west side. GM plans to close it by September 2011 unless a buyer
is found.

City development director Michael Huber tells The Indianapolis Star that the sales negotiations between GM and JD
Norman Industries of suburban Chicago are in early stages, but that it "could be a great fit."

UAW Region 3 director Maurice Davison says Norman surfaced in GM's search as the best potential buyer and that the deal
would save jobs at the factory.
