CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS IDENTIFIES MORE GM PLANTS AT RISK OF CLOSING

CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS IDENTIFIES MORE GM PLANTS AT RISK OF CLOSING
 DETROIT, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In its Monday edition, Crain's Detroit Business identifies seven General Motors Corp. plans in Michigan that state commerce officials consider "at risk" of closing in addition to the five GM announced it would close last week.
 The communities that could be affected by a second round of closings are: Pontiac, Orion Township, Livonia and Flint. The state believes another 12,900 jobs could be at risk.
 The state Commerce Department drew up the list as part of a state study completed Thursday; state officials met Friday to discuss strategies to avoid further plant closings, Crain's reported.
 Vulnerable assembly and parts & components plants on the state's at-risk list are:
 -- Pontiac East assembly plant and the CPC Stamping Plant.
 -- Lake Orion Assembly Plant.
 -- 3 component plants in Flint: Inland Fisher Guide and parts of AC Rochester and Buick City complexes.
 -- Livonia's Inland Fisher Guide Plant.
 Crain's Monday report also includes stories about: infighting between the Commerce Department and the governor's office over Willow Run; the impact of the Willow Run closing on the health care industry, area businesses and the state's jobless programs.
 In the same issue, Crain's also reports some good news for some auto suppliers.
 Boeing Co. of Seattle, Wash., has issued some of the largest aircraft-tooling contracts in Detroit since World War II.
 At least four Detroit-area tooling companies have contracts for the work. The aerospace contracts could give auto-oriented companies in Detroit some much-needed diversification, Crain's reports.
