GM Boosting Production at Tennessee Plant

The Spring Hill plant's workers used to make Saturn vehicles, but its production line was shut down in 2009 amid GM's bankruptcy. But now the automaker plans to spend an additional $350 million there, creating or retaining about 1,800 jobs.

General Motors announced Aug. 6 it is raising to $350 million its planned spending for new vehicles to be produced at its Spring Hill, Tenn. assembly plant, located 40 miles south of Nashville. This action adds $167 million to a previously announced $183 million pledge and is expected to create or retain 1,800 jobs, according to the company. The announcement is more good news for the UAW workforce and the community; the plant was shut down as recently as 2009 when GM was in bankruptcy.

The new investment is:

  • An additional $40 million added to the earlier announced $183 million investment to support a future mid-size vehicle program, bringing the new total investment to $223 million
  • A second mid-size vehicle program with an investment of $127 million

"Today's announcement recognizes the commitment of Spring Hill employees and leadership," said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. "As a team, they draw upon the plant's unique heritage and dedicated workforce to deliver top quality for our customers."
