GM Announces Investment in Fort Wayne Plant

Since 2015, the General Motors Fort Wayne Assembly Plant in Indiana has had over $1.2 billion in investments to meet the growing demand of two of the bestselling vehicles from GM.

What’s Made in Fort Wayne

Both the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra are among the models assembled in Fort Wayne, and with sales of the two full-size pickup trucks growing, GM has invested another $24 million into the plant to meet demands. As with previous improvements to capacity, the facility’s new conveyor equipment and tools, set for completion this summer, will continue to increase production of these popular models, specifically the Crew Cab configuration.

“The team here at Fort Wayne has done an outstanding job helping us satisfy customers throughout this launch,” stated GM CEO Mary Barra. “Our product ramp-up was very smooth and the quality has been exceptional. Crew cab sales have been very strong, and we are expanding customer choice with new models, more cab choices, and innovative new powertrains.”

Success in Fort Wayne

Just this year, sales of the Silverado and Sierra crew cabs were up 20 percent. It’s easy to see why GM is eager to invest another $24 million into the successful plant.

Although no new jobs are in the plans, the Fort Wayne Assembly Plant already employs 4,230 hourly workers. A veritable army of workers to meet growing production demands.
