General Motors to add third shift to Fort Wayne GM Plant!

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Bradley (260)704-0843

General Motors has announced plans to add a third production shift at its pickup truck assembly plant in Allen County.

The third production shift is expected to begin operation in April, 2010.  It's part of a production ramp up by GM.   The Fort Wayne plant, which began production in 1986, has never had a third shift before.  The plant's second shift was added in 1987. The move will require the hiring of approximately 700 additional workers.   The plant currently employs about 3,000.  Great news for Fort Wayne!

 

The production increase is intended to build up inventory of pickup trucks, even though GM admits the market is still not as strong as it once was.  However, demand for the Silverado and Sierra pickups has allowed GM to command a 40 percent market share for pickups in North America.

The Fort Wayne plant will take over production of  heavy duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups currently made at a Pontiac, Michigan plant set to close this month.

Besides the Fort Wayne plant, GM announced plans to add a third shift to its Fairfax plant in Kansas City, Kan., in January. That will be followed in April by a third shift at a factory in Delta Township, Mich., near Lansing.

The Fairfax plant makes the midsize Chevrolet Malibu, Saturn Aura and Buick LaCrosse, while Delta Township makes the GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook large crossover vehicles.

The company says about 2,400 workers will be recalled at the three plants because of the production increases.

GREAT NEWS FOR THE FORT WAYNE COMMUNITY!!!

That is very good news for Ft. Wayne and the Hoosier state!  A bunch of Keller Williams agents toured our Subaru plant in Lafayette recently and they are doing well also.  Associates can work OT an hour or two each night if they wish, and two Saturday's this month to keep up with production orders.  Thanks for sharing the story.
