General Motors is making good on previous investment announces at two of its assembly plants in the U.S. The company has confirmed $47 million from a $1 billion investment announced earlier will be executed at Spring Hill Assembly in Tennessee to build right-hand drive variants of the GMC Acadia and an additional powertrain facility.
GM is earmarking $27 million to Spring Hill for the GMC Acadia. Right-hand drive versions of the crossover will be produced and exported to Australia as the Holden Acadia. The remaining $20 million will go to GM’s Bay City, Michigan powertrain plant for cam rough machining. Neither investment is slated to create new jobs.
The company is alleging that the investments are assisting in retaining existing employees at both facilities.
