Auto-parts supplier Johnson Controls ( JCI) plans to cut jobs, close 10 manufacturing plants, and record an estimated second-quarter pretax restructuring charge of $200 million to $215 million as it battles a slump in vehicle production.

The number of job cuts wasn't specified.

In a statement Friday, the company, which also makes facility management systems, said it expects to return to profitability in the fiscal third and fourth quarters.

"While we don't expect near-term recoveries in our markets, we believe we can manage through this environment from a position of strength and enhance our ability to gain further market share while improving our margins," said Chairman and CEO Stephen Roell.

Johnson Controls said its Automotive Experience business is expected to achieve a breakeven run-rate by the end of the fiscal year.

Johnson Controls said the restructuring is targeting excess manufacturing capacity that has resulted from lower industry production in the European, North American and Japanese automotive markets.

The company said it now expects vehicle production in the 2009 fiscal year to be 8.8 million units in North America and 14.3 million units in Europe, lower than forecasts it made in December.
