GM Announces $20 Million Investment in Arlington Assembly Plant
General Motors announced Monday an investment of over $20 million in the Arlington, Texas assembly plant that employees 4,500 members.
Arlington Assembly—first opened in 1954—is the sole producer of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade.
GM has invested more than $1.4 billion in Arlington Assembly since 2015 to build a new paint shop and for upgrades to the body shop and general assembly area.
“Under the outstanding leadership of UAW Region 5 Director Vance Pearson, the dedicated membership at UAW Local 276 continues to build world-class SUVs in Arlington, Texas. The UAW continues to commend GM for making investments in U.S. locations. We believe that building a product where you sell is good for our members, their families, our communities and all of America. We hope to see more investments in the future at other General Motors facilities throughout our country,” said Terry Dittes, Vice President of the UAW GM Department.
Construction on the enhancements is set to be completed next year.
