General Motors Plans To Invest More In Its Flint Truck Plant

About $150 million is to be invested by General Motor on its Truck Assembly Plant in Flint.

The company is planning to spend its investment to step up its production of heavy-duty pickups, GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. The money will be spent on factory conveyors and other tools related to it.

Mark Reuss, the GM President has commented on his new investment saying that this is a tremendous opportunity to grow in heavy-duty pickup truck business.

He claims that the new Chevrolet and HD pickups are strong, tough and capable as heavy-duty pickups and the Flint team will be able to meet the challenge to produce world-class products that will bring in growth.

The GM Assembly plant at Flint has been pumped with around $1.6 billion investment right from 2013. With this allocation of money, the factory has been able to increase its pickup vehicles by 40,000 units per year. Additionally, 1,000 new jobs have been provided early this year. Production capacity has been increased in the factory.

The 2020 heavy-duty models Chevrolet Silverado and Sierra will be shipped to dealers by this week. Their styling details are different. One factor that is most differentiating is that Multipro tailgate of Sierra HD has six different settings, which also includes its functioning as a workbench and a staircase.

There are more body styles coming. The regular Sierra HD is the regular one with room for a backseat and is handy as a hard-working truck.

The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra have had high volume sales, up by 20 percent for the first quarter of 2019, when compared to the previous year sales volume.

With this investment in Flint and Fort Wayne, GM intends to strengthen its truck and SUV business. GM opened its Flint Assembly in 1947 and is committed to delivering safer and sustainable ways in using these vehicles.
