$39 million is going to the Toledo transmission plant and $32 million to Defiance casting plant
General Motors recently announced that it plans to invest $71 million into two Ohio manufacturing facilities. The $71 million will be split between $39 million going to its Toledo transmission plant and $32 million going to its Defiance casting plant.
“Through these investments, GM continues to strengthen its significant manufacturing presence in Ohio,” said Phil Kienle, GM vice president of North American Manufacturing and Labor Relations. “Our Toledo and Defiance teams continue to focus on building world-class products for our customers and these actions are an investment in their futures.”
The Toledo transmission plant manufactures and assembles GM’s 6-speed, 8-speed, and 10-speed rear-wheel-drive transmissions and 9-speed front-wheel-drive transmissions that are used in all of GM's product offerings from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac. While the Defiance casting plant manufactures cylinder block and cylinder head castings for inline-four, V-6 and V-8 engines used in Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.
