GM plans $600-million expansion at Kansas City plant for Chevy Malibu, Buick LaCrosse sedans [View all]

Source: Detroit Free Press

General Motors will invest $600 million to expand its Kansas City plant, which builds the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans.

The automaker said today that it would construct a new 450,000-square-foot paint shop at its 3.2 million-square-foot Fairfax Assembly and Stamping plant. It also plans to install a new stamping press and incorporate new environmentally friendly technologies.

The company said the construction would not increase employment or production schedules at the plant, which has about 4,000 hourly and salaried employees working three shifts.

The announcement comes less than two weeks after GM North America President Mark Reuss said in Detroit that GM would soon reveal $1.5 billion in fresh investments this year in its North American operations.
