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

“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.
