General Motors Plans $2B Investment in Spring Hill, Tennessee, Assembly Plant
GM’s Spring Hill manufacturing plant is the automaker’s largest facility in North America. The flexible vehicle assembly plant and Global Propulsion Systems plant are located on 2,100 acres with 700 of those acres dedicated to farming and an additional 100 acres dedicated to a wildlife habitat.
According to state officials, the announcement adds to the more than $2.3 billion GM has invested in the Spring Hill manufacturing plant since 2010. The Spring Hill plant will be GM’s third electric vehicle manufacturing site, and the first outside of the state of Michigan.
“These investments demonstrate how committed we are to an all-electric future, and how we are investing in our communities and our employees to achieve that future by working together. The partnership from the State of Tennessee and Maury County were key elements in making this investment possible and I am very excited to see Spring Hill Assembly play a leading role in our journey to transform the future of transportation,” Gerald Johnson, GM executive vice president of Global Manufacturing said.
“Today marks a new milestone in Tennessee’s partnership with General Motors. GM has invested billions in the state over the years, but this nearly $2 billion investment represents the largest single expansion investment ever made in our state. We appreciate GM and its leadership for this significant investment in our state and for its ongoing commitment to Spring Hill and its workforce,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
Through this investment, GM’s Spring Hill paint and body shops will undergo major expansions, and general assembly will receive comprehensive upgrades, which include new machines, conveyors, controls and tooling. Renovation and construction will begin immediately.
“Tennessee is committed to supporting the growth of advanced manufacturing, and in the automotive sector, the focus is on electric vehicles. This substantial investment by General Motors will support our efforts to become a leading state for electric vehicle manufacturing, and we thank GM, Maury County and Spring Hill for their continued partnership,” Governor Bill Lee said.
