General Motors of Canada is adding 600 employees at its Oshawa Assembly Plant in Oshawa, Ontario, to meet demand for the Chevrolet Equinox. The workers will staff a third shift, with work beginning tonight.
"In one-third of the time it would normally take, our teams at Oshawa and CAMI have quickly implemented innovative solutions to satisfy incredible customer demand for these popular vehicles," said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada. "The successful implementation of these unique capacity increases reflects the new agility and customer focus that drives every business decision we make."
The Equinox is one of the fastest-selling cars in North America, along with GM's GMC Terrain.
