General Motors will invest $491 million at its Marion, Indiana, metal stamping operations to prepare the facility to produce a variety of steel and aluminum stamped parts for future products, including electric vehicles, built at multiple GM assembly plants.
The investment will be used to purchase and install two new press lines, complete press and die upgrades, for renovations and to construct an approximately 6,000-square-foot addition. Work on the facility will begin later this year.
First opened in 1956, GM’s Marion Metal Center produces sheet metal parts for multiple GM assembly plants to support production of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles. Marion currently employs more than 750 team members and employment is expected to remain stable with the addition of this new work in the plant, GM says.
