GM will invest $1 billion in truck engine manufacturing facilities in Michigan

General Motors Co. announced today plans to invest more than $1 billion in two of its Flint, Michigan, manufacturing sites – Flint Assembly and Flint Metal Center – to prepare those plants for production of the next-generation internal combustion engine (ICE) heavy-duty trucks. This investment will enable the company to strengthen its full-size truck business. Product details and timing related to GM’s future HD trucks are not being released at this time.

Today’s announcement brings GM’s U.S. manufacturing and parts distribution facility investment commitments to more than $30.5 billion since 2013.

“Today we are announcing significant investments in Flint to strengthen our industry-leading full-size pickup business by preparing two plants to build the next-generation ICE HD trucks,” said Gerald Johnson, executive vice president, Global Manufacturing and Sustainability. “These investments reflect our commitment to our loyal truck customers as well as the efforts of the dedicated employees of Flint Assembly and Flint Metal Centre.”

This investment bolsters GM’s U.S. manufacturing operations, which include more than 50 assembly, stamping, propulsion and component plants and parts distribution centers nationwide. It also emphasises the company’s commitment to continue offering a strong portfolio of ICE vehicles to customers for many years to come.
