GM to Expand Duramax Manufacturing Capabilities
To meet the growing demand for its Duramaxpowered HD trucks, GM is investing $175 million in a new engine component facility in Brookville, Ohio. The new plant will deliver precision-machined components to the DMAX engine plant in Moraine, Ohio beginning in late 2020. The new plant will consist of 251,000 square feet of space and provide more than 100 new manufacturing jobs. The Brookville facility is part of GM’S move to support a capacity increase of 40,000 units compared to ’19 model trucks. The automaker has already consolidated heavy-duty pickup production at its Flint, Michigan truck assembly plant, complete with new body and paint shops, along with creating 1,000 new jobs.
