GM Oshawa plant reopens
- November 17, 2021
GM Canada has announced the first Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck has rolled off the line at its reopened assembly plant in Oshawa, ON.
“The return of truck production to Oshawa provides a significant economic boost for Canada’s automotive sector, creating 1,800 new jobs to support two shifts of production in Oshawa, and supporting thousands of additional jobs in the supplier base in Canada,” GM said.
In addition to the hiring and training of the workforce required, the plant underwent an extensive retooling leading up to the reopening, which was one of the fastest in GM’s history. The company says that 1800 new jobs have been created, in turn supporting thousands of additional jobs with Canadian automotive suppliers.
GM says demand for its pickup trucks is on the rise. The pickups built in Oshawa will begin shipping to dealers next month.
