  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5-30-2019 GM's heavy investment in the Fort Wayne assembly plant since 2015 is now up to $1.5 billion. A new $24 million investment will enhance the plant’s conveyors and other tooling to support increased production of our favorite two trucks, the Sierra and Silverado. GM says that the work will be completed this summer. GM CEO, Mary Barra, toured the plant and spoke to workers today. “We are building Chevrolet and GMC crew cab pickups at record volume and mix levels to meet customer demand and the $24 million investment will allow us to build even more,” said Barra. “The team here at Fort Wayne has done an outstanding job helping us satisfy customers throughout this launch. 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.” GM says that the new trucks are selling at a rate about 20% higher than the old trucks did. GM is projecting a big increase for the coming second quarter. Deliveries of the double-cab models built in Fort Wayne began during the first quarter. The Fort Wayne Assembly plant employs over 4,500 workers. The plant has over 40 miles of conveyors and 97 truck docks with a material delivery to a dock every 2.6 minutes. The plant contributed $76,826,918.52 in income tax revenue and paid out $418,631,064 in wages last year. The plant covers 716 acres.
  2. The upgrades include: New pre-treatment facility featuring thin-film paint pretreatment E-coat paint customized to each vehicle style, resulting in superior coverage and curability GM-patented radiant tube ovens for exceptional paint finish and lower energy use New equipment that accommodates the many variations of the truck cab and box being placed on the chassis New skillet conveyance systems for instrument panel assembly intended to improve worker ergonomics, leading to better product quality. This announcement is good news for the local economy around Indiana. Said Indiana Gov. Mike Pence: “Around the world, Indiana is known as a proven leader in advanced manufacturing. Powered by a pro-growth business environment and a highly-skilled workforce, GM is leveraging Indiana’s strengths to help it remain competitive across the globe. Today’s announcement marks a significant promise to the Hoosier State and ensures GM’s presence in Indiana and its support of Hoosier jobs long into the future, reaffirming that Indiana is a state that works for business.” Production will be unaffected by the changes and construction during the investment which is slated to begin in June and last for the next few years. Ft. Wayne assembly has been producing pickups in 1986. Today it employs 3,800 employees who work three shifts a day.
