General Motors has announced plans to spend $350 million for new vehicles to be produced at its Spring Hill, Tenn., assembly plant. The new investment adds $167 million to a previously announced $183 million pledge and is expected to create or retain about 1,800 jobs.
The new investment is for midsize vehicle programs that will add to existing manufacturing operations at the site, which include vehicle assembly, stamping, engine, and component parts production.
GM Spring Hill Mfg. operates as a flexible-assembly plant. The facility is designed to supplement production for plants being retooled for new products or add production to meet sales spikes in real time.
