General Motors plans to invest $150 million in its Flint Truck Assembly Plant.
The company intends to use the funds to increase manufacture of heavy-duty pickups such as the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. The funds will be used to purchase factory conveyors and other relevant equipment.
The GM President, Mark Reuss, has remarked on his new investment, saying that it is a fantastic opportunity to expand in the heavy-duty pickup truck sector.
He believes that the new Chevrolet and HD trucks are as robust, capable, and strong as heavy-duty pickups, and that the Flint team will be able to face the task of producing world-class goods that will drive growth.
Since 2013, the GM assembly plant in Flint has received roughly $1.6 billion in investment. The plant has been able to raise its pickup vehicle production by 40,000 units per year thanks to this funding. In addition, 1,000 new employment were created in the first quarter of this year. The factory’s production capacity has been boosted.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado and Sierra heavy-duty pickup trucks will be delivered to dealers this week. They have different styling features. One of the most distinguishing features is the Sierra HD’s Multipro tailgate, which has six distinct configurations and can also be used as a workstation and a staircase.
More body types are on the way. The ordinary Sierra HD is a conventional Sierra with a backseat and is useful as a work vehicle.
When compared to the previous year’s sales volume, sales of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra have increased by 20% in the first quarter of 2019.
GM aims to enhance its truck and SUV industry by investing in Flint and Fort Wayne. GM’s Flint Assembly first opened its doors in 1947, and the company is dedicated to making these vehicles safer and more environmentally friendly.
