GM deal with failed supplier averts nationwide plant shutdown | Reuters

General Motors Co (GM.N) narrowly avoided having to shut down some or all of its North American plants because of the failure of a small Massachusetts parts supplier when a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge ruled on Wednesday that GM could retrieve the tooling and finished parts from the supplier, Clark-Cutler-McDermott, a court hearing showed.

CCM, a 105-year-old supplier of acoustical materials based in Franklin, Massachusetts, was the sole supplier of insulation and other sound-deadening materials to GM.
