There is nothing we at Suski Chevrolet love more than good news, okay besides selling you amazing Chevy and Buick vehicles. But as far as the good news goes, we have only General Motors and Chevrolet, specifically, to thank. The company announced that they plan on adding 1,400 jobs right here in our great state of Michigan.
In what is planned to be a $450 million investment, GM is focusing on the newly redesigned Chevy Volt. By adding a second shift to their Hamtramck plant where the Volt as well as the Malibu and Impala are made, more jobs will be created. Additionally, there will be investments made into the Brownstown Township factory which produces the Volt’s battery. More information on this plan is laid out in this Detroit Free Press article.
At a luncheon event in Detroit attended by Gov. Rick Snyder, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and high ranking representatives of GM and Chevrolet Gerald Johnson, GM North America Manufacturing vice president, had this to say about the investment in the re-imagined Chevrolet Volt in a GM press release about the event.
“General Motors is committed to building award-winning products and developing technologies in America, which helps to grow our economy from a resurgent auto industry. These investments will help the next-generation Chevrolet Volt build on its position as the leader in electrified propulsion.”
