Crisis times did not spare Mazda. The company had to abandon unprofitable production facilities around the world. Thus, AutoAlliance International, a joint venture between Ford and Mazda, stopped the production of cars of the Japanese brand at its plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The enterprise will fully switch over to the assembly of Ford vehicles. Mazda has a 50 percent stake in the joint venture. The plant in Flat Rock used to assemble popular all over the world Mazda 6 model. For the U.S. market, this model will be produced in Japan.
