GM to Invest $220-Million in Ohio Plants for Production of Next Cruze
According to GM Manufacturing Manager Arvin Jones, "Thanks to northeast Ohio's supportive business climate, we're able to build on a great foundation and steer the Chevrolet Cruze into the next generation [. . .] A special thanks goes to Governor John Kasich and his team at Jobs Ohio for their strong leadership and advocacy for GM and our employees."
No clear date for the beginning of production has yet been announced, but preparation has reportedly already begun at the Lordstown facility, which has been making cars since 1966 - 14.6-million units so far. It will be supplied with parts from the Parma Metal Center, a facility which can produce up to 100-million parts per year.
