Detroit (AP) -- Chrysler Group LLC says it will resume making vehicles at seven of its north American factories starting June 29.

All the company's factories were shut down May 4, shortly after it went into chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The company confirmed that factories in Sterling Heights and Warren, Mich.; St. Louis; Toledo, Ohio; Brampton and Windsor, Ontario; and Toluca, Mexico, would restart operations. Production at a Detroit factory resumed Monday.

Parts plants that supply the assembly factories also will restart June 29, the company said.

Most of Chrysler's assets were sold to a new company led by Italian automaker Fiat group Spa.

The new company emerged from bankruptcy protection June 10.
