GM Invests $220 Million In Chevrolet Cruze Production At Two Ohio Plants
"Thanks to northeast Ohio's supportive business climate, we're able to build on a great foundation and steer the Chevrolet Cruze into the next generation," GM Manufacturing Manager Arvin Jones said. "A special thanks goes to Governor John Kasich and his team at Jobs Ohio for their strong leadership and advocacy for GM and our employees."
Workers at GM's Lordstown Complex near Youngstown, Ohio, with support from the metal center in the Cleveland suburb of Parma, Ohio, have built more than 500,000 of Chevrolet's top-selling compact autos, since production began in September 2010. The plant is currently busy clearing space in the Lordstown body shop to make room for new models of Cruze vehicles, which will feature improved fuel economy, more storage space and an improved interior compartment.
In a joint statement, UAW Local 1112 Shop Chairman Ben Strickland and UAW Local 1714 Shop Chairman Will Adams credited the Lordstown Team with bringing Cruze manufacturing to Ohio. "The men and women of Lordstown are working hard to keep the Cruze a top-quality small car choice. The next-generation of the Cruze is well earned and we are thrilled to be assigned work that will keep good-paying next generation UAW jobs in the state of Ohio for years to come."
