Ohio to get employment boost from GM

GM CEO Mary Barra has publicly stated that she is committed to creating job opportunities in the U.S.

It looks like GM's commitment could begin in Ohio. In May, 2019, GM announced that it will be creating 450 manufacturing jobs. The three cities in Ohio that will benefit from these jobs are Toledo, Parma, and Moraine.

The DMAX plant in Moraine will be adding jobs to support diesel engine production for GM’s all-new heavy-duty pickups, which go on sale later this year. The new 10-speed automatic transmission that is used in trucks and SUVs is in high demand. Toledo Transmission will increase production as a result. In Parma, the production of stamped parts will increase and laser cell welding technology will be deployed.

General Motors has announced a strategic plan to bring jobs to the U.S. Below are the targets for the rest of 2019.
  • 450 new jobs at GM sites in Ohio: Toledo, Parma and Moraine.
  • 1,000 new jobs at Flint Assembly to support production of the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups, which launch in the second half of 2019.
  • 400 new jobs to support the launch of a second Chevrolet battery-electric vehicle at Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Michigan.
  • 400 jobs coming later this year to support a second production shift at Bowling Green Assembly in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
