General Motors Invests $127.4 Million To Expand Bedford, Indiana Die Casting Plant

General Motors is investing $127.4 million to expand its 915,000 square foot Die Casting Plant in Bedford, Indiana. The company plans to add 127 associates to its 700 member workforce.

Workers at the plant manufacture transmission casings and converter housings for the new fuel efficient six speed transmissions. The expansion will produce powertrain and structural components to support production of new aluminum engine blocks and components.

Employees at the plant work on three shifts and produces transmission casings, converter housings, heads, and small gas engine blocks used in Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.

“This investment in the future recognizes the excellent workforce at Bedford Casting Operations” said Bedford Casting Operations Plant Manager Lamar Rucker. “It also demonstrates GM’s collaboration with our UAW and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers partners, which reflects how we continue to bring new powertrain solutions to our customers.”

Including today’s investment, GM has invested more than $426 million in the Bedford plant since 2010, company officials said. So far in 2015, GM has announced more than $6.5 billion in U.S. facility investment, creating approximately 3,370 new jobs and securing the positions of 15,350 employees.
