General Motors Plans $788.7 Million Expansion At Spring Hill, Tennessee, Assembly Plant

General Motors will invest $788.7 million and create 781 new jobs for a new high-efficiency engine program and to modernize the vehicle programs at the company’s manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

“This investment will position GM and its workforce as continued leaders in powertrain manufacturing,” said Arvin Jones, GM North America Manufacturing Manager. “Today’s announcement reinforces our absolute faith in this facility, and our strong commitment to this community and the state of Tennessee.”

The Spring Hill site is a flexible vehicle assembly plant currently producing the Cadillac XT5 and the GMC Acadia, as well 4-cylinder engines and stampings used in several GM vehicles.

According to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development this latest expansion brings GM’s total investment in the Spring Hill plant in 2016 up to more than $936 million including an expansion announced in February. The company has announced investments of over $2 billion for Spring Hill since 2010.

“We want to congratulate GM on another important investment in Spring Hill and its workforce,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Tennessee has an incredibly strong business climate, and we continue to attract investment from companies that can choose to do business anywhere in the world. It is important to see long-time partners like GM continue to invest in Tennessee and create high-quality jobs here.”

"It is always important when an existing industry expands. But, it is extra exciting when a world-class company like GM makes such a significant reinvestment in your community. It is a testament to the great workforce and business climate found in Maury County. We are grateful to GM for their vote of confidence, thankful for the great jobs being created in the community, and excited to work with GM towards their continued success in Maury County,” Maury County Mayor Charlie Norman said.

TVA understands the importance of reliable, affordable electricity to General Motors and the entire automotive industry. We are proud to be a partner in this announcement, which will lead to more jobs and investment in the region’s economy,” TVA President/CEO Bill Johnson said.
